  • Catalogue Essay

    The present reference 6038 in yellow gold is one of the most attractive examples of this timeless classic of the late 1950s. It is powered by the firm’s calibre P1019-1, stamped twice with the seal of Geneva.


    The well preserved case of masculine proportion is fitted with a screw back and enjoys popularity thanks to its diameter over 35 mm.


    The absolutely most striking element of this watch is however the dial. Its surface is finished in two-tones of off white and the minute marks outside are engraved beads. The applied hour markers are either faceted baton or (at 12, 3, 6 and 9) faceted roman numerals.


    The most remarkable and unusual feature are the gold applied stars positioned outside the roman numerals. The dial, a work of art, is in beautiful original condition.
