Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1958, the reference 3418 was mostly sold with a steel bracelet. But the owner had the option to swap it with a leather strap thanks to an ingenious convertible system under the case.

    This particular reference with its waterproof case was made for the purpose of being sold in a tropical climate. According to the Certificate d'Origine, this fine example was sold in Panama in 1961.
