Other: If you fancy wearing a vintage watch that nobody else has, this wild Lucien Piccard Skeleton openworked watch may be the perfect unicorn piece. You probably didn't even know that this model existed... We had never seen one before and it's actually quite difficult to believe that this existed back in the 1960s. In terms of rarity, we've only been able to find one other example and it is coincidentally listed for sale on eBay right now with the wrong hands/crown and a polished case with bent lugs (for more money). The example that we are offering for sale here is in collector-grade, all-original condition. We discovered it on its original strap and buckle in untouched condition! The case is completely unpolished, and the original acrylic crystals are clean. It's not often that you see a vintage watch with an acrylic exhibition caseback... The Florentine finish on the top of the movement and bezel is absolutely gorgeous. This watch is just killer! We seriously doubt you'll ever find another example in this condition.
