When is a 6694 "Batman" not a 6694? When it becomes a 7262 "Sinatra" . My 7262 just returned from a factory restoration to join it's older brother who went to the spa last year. As with most families, the older brother acts more grown-up and wears a business suit. While younger brother is all flash and dash and eager to show it.
Younger brother was born in 1966 as a yellow gold Chronometre Royal 6694 on a strap, and was converted at the factory a year later with the addition of a diamond dial and "grains of barley" bracelet. The lugs were decorated with a hammered guilloche to match the bracelet and the whole creation was assigned a new reference number: 7262. Inside beats a Gyromax calibre 1072/1 movement.
Older brother came into the world in 1963 as an already special white gold Chronometre Royal 6694 containing a calibre 1072 with swan-neck fine regulator. Not one for cosmetic surgery, older brother wears his conservative suit proudly. It is a happy reunion .
