The present lot is a specimen of 6263 which means that is equipped with the acrylic black, graduated bezel. Its tonneau case is in stainless steel, equipped with a beautiful Oyster bracelet maintaining a very high quality of preservation with the acrylic bezel still untouched. The silvered dial has applied baton indexes, luminous dots and black subsidiary dials with “T Swiss T” designation. The caliber is the Valjoux 727.
