Ref. 5513: Here's something you don't see every day! Ricciardi was one of the biggest jewelers in South America. Based in Buenos Aires Argentina, Ricciardi retailed both Rolex and Patek, among many other brands. They were noted to hand stamp their own inventory number on the back of the lugs of all the watches sold there, similar to what Cartier did.
Recently detailed case in excellent condition. Featuring crisp edges and a sharp chamfer. Numbers are clean and visible. Ricciardi number "159482" is stamped and clearly visible on the underside of the lower right lug.
Matte "Non-Serif" dial in excellent condition with a nice medium patina. The hour hand is slightly discolored but generally matches with the pearl and dial. The bezel has faded to a nice dark grey. There is a small scratch between the 11 and 12 o'clock area on the bezel insert.
Comes on a folded oyster fliplock bracelet with 380 endpieces. 11 links total.
