Ref. 5512: An excellent example of an early 5512, this particular watch is characterized by its irregular shaped coronet, hence its name. Made for a very short period of time, this watch has a truly impressive look with its greenish lume and faded bezel. This particular example has a beautiful dial that is very glossy and has very little surface wear.
Case has been detailed and exhibits crisp chamfers and clean sharp crown guards. Lugs are thick and straight, and numbers are clean and visible. Caseback stamped II.60, indicating a production in the second quarter of 1960.
Original "tulip crown" dial in excellent condition. Minor surface wear, but no swirls on the dial. It is very glossy and exhibits no crazing. There is a tiny pinhole dimple in the luminous at 12 o'clock. Hands are aged and have a tone consistent with the luminous on the dial.
Comes on a Swiss rivet 7206 band with 80 end pieces and 11 links. It has little stretch and is in beautiful condition. The date of the clasp is 3/69.
