In the first half of the 1970s, the "watch bracelet", i.e., designed to be a single element, was a great success. The entire watch industry followed this trend, even the most prestigious manufacturers, with Audemars Piguet unveiling the Royal Oak in 1972 and Patek Philippe bringing out the Nautilus in 1976.
Its very finely brushed silver dial has "baguette riveted" indexes with black thread.
A similar model (with day indication) is in the Omega Museum in Biel under reference 3273 (page 481).
Good general condition, slight dial patina, wear scratches on the case, bracelet slightly distended at the lugs, the watch works at the time of the expertise, without guarantee of functioning over time, a service recommended.
