This very nice and unusual watch immediately catches for its conditions and rare composition of pink-gold structure. Its style is essential and basic, set mainly on an elegant aesthetic and a delicate shape. The 18k pink gold case is an absolute rarity, because the classic production of this reference included the use of a smooth case while a small handful of them were made with these special lugs. The silver guillochè dial has applied baton numerals, outer dot minute track, pink Dauphine hands, subsidiary seconds at 6 with a charming patina but in real perfect conditions. The dial also offers the special designation “chronometer” and under it is printed the Serpico Y Laino signature as on the back of the case, the famous Venezuelan retailer active from 1925 to 1966. Interesting thing is the super rare original pink gold bracelet with lines in gold in exceptional conditions.
