Footnotes

  • First appearing in the early 1960s, the 'exotic' or 'tropical' dial was renamed the 'Paul Newman' by Italian collectors after the American actor wore the watch in promotional posters for the film 'Winning.'

    By sinking the subsidiary dials and outer black scale within the creamy opaque dial background, the dial achieves an unusual three-dimensionality.
