I was delighted to pick up my Ref: 6272 a few days ago after a long journey...
It had been sent to Switzerland for a complete overhaul in Nov 2009. It came back in Nov 2010 and worked perfectly for 3 weeks....
For some reason it stopped ticking even fully wound. I sent it back under warranty and after another partial overhaul it seems to be ticking healthfully!
A Maltese Cross sticker!
Shiny new acrylic "bubble" crystal and polished case - just like it was born yesterday!!
Not the original buckle, but very desirable nonetheless!
As you might guess, my 50+ year old baby is finally getting plenty of well-deserved wrist time!
With best regards
