: Congratulations on this one!!
: Seems that this one might have the heavy red accents on the dial .
: . . I'll need to study it further, and it would also be great if
: you can send me the complete serial number.
: And the 1/69 on the clasp of the bracelet is also special!!
: Great watch!!
: Thanks for sharing!!
Thanks Jeff, yes it is special.
First batch of cases 141.xxx-143.xxx,
a lot of them Chronomatics and mine one of the first 141.2xx.
At Christies this year Chronomatics where sold with a later serial number 141.3xx.
I think too, that the accents are the heavy red ones like the Chronomatics.
At 3-6-9-12 only three white 20sec-accents are visible on each side,
the later produced Viceroy have four 20-sec-accents on each side of the red accent.
So i hope you will come to the same point of view.
