18 000 family, introduced in 1977 with some innovative features, such as the presence of a more resistant sapphire crystal, an improved screw down crown and case back, enhancing the waterproof abilities of the model to 100 meters and anew caliber 3055 with quick-set date. Highly attractive and rare, the present timepiece features a beautiful wooden dial allied to a 18k white-gold case of strong proportions that match with the applied baton indexes in white gold. Free of any signs of ageing to its dial, the rarity of the timepiece is amplified by its very good overall conditions and, most of all for the very unusual and sought after Chinese calendar, a true gem for Day-Date collectors since only a handful of them have been produced.
