Due to its unique color contrasts, creating an exotic dial as truthful to the original model as possible, required the expertise of the greatest specialists. Entirely handmade in Switzerland in our workshops, each dial of our Tribute to 6241 gold is carefully and accurately repainted. We created smooth push buttons resembling the ones from the 1970’s. The hands, delicate and refined, discretely embellish the richness of the dial. Each hand is diamond polished and refined. The case has been modified by hand. Our Tribute is mounted on a solid gold bracelet and is provided with an extra handmade alligator strap.
