Exponent of the reference 3588/2, second series of 3588 launched in 1970, the present wristwatch is a very nice specimen of Chevron Gold of absolutely great quality. The three body case in white gold with engraved stepped bezel and recessed winding crown is finely preserved with its solid integrated bracelet decorated with a wave pattern. The silvered dial displays a textured design with painted radial Breguet numerals with a similar engraved waved decoration and black baton hands moved by the caliber 28–255. To date, very few examples of reference 3588/2 have appeared on the market in this particular configuration, making this example very rare.
