The Monaco Legend Group team has put together an astonishing selection of rarities in the horological field. From the Unique Piece Rolex Yachtmaster, former property of the late President of Rolex Patrick Heiniger, to an outstanding example of the Patek Philippe 2523-1. Not to mention the great selection of rarities destined for Middle Eastern market, such as a Rolex Submariner and Daytona from the Sultanate of Oman and a steel Daytona with UAE emblem on the dial.

Incredibly understated yet impossibly glamorous, the present watch is a sight to behold. This rarely seen model, reference 6085, most notably features an incredibly charming dial and a pink-gold case that is very rare to find. The reference 6085, such as the present watch, is also known as the “Super Oyster” and is identified by its large screw down case back and crown. Characterized by a two-body case and a reeded graduated bezel in pink gold, this lot is a very nicely preserved example of 6085. Furthermore, it features a fascinating and catching black gilt dial with applied faceted pink-gold indexes, luminous dot markers, outer divisions and pink-gold dauphine hands. With the typical Oyster case to prevent the water entering in the movement, this watch is equipped with a tile bracelet and an unusual, rare and striking alternative to classic Oyster models.
