Other: If you fancy wearing a vintage watch that nobody else has, this wild Lucien Piccard World Time Seashark Automatique may be the perfect unicorn piece. You probably didn't even know that this model existed... The glossy blue "vignette" dial reminds us of that of a vintage Rolex Day-Date except Lucien Piccard decided to apply world maps to the dial to create a wristwatch for travelers. The unique dial is divided into 12 zones and the wearer can quickly do calculations from one zone to another by using the blue references from the tension ring crystal. The details on this watch are absolutely mind-blowing! The date at 6 o'clock with color-matched date wheel, the blue cabochon crown, the luminous hands with blue inlay, the "fluted" bezel on the case, and of course the multi-colored world maps applied to the dial. Even crazier, this example comes as a full set with original inner and outer boxes, booklets, guarantee, hang-tag, and cleaning cloth. It was presented to a 25-year member of the Boilermakers Union from Allen Park, Michigan (Local 169). We seriously doubt you'll find another set like this... For peace of mind, the self-winding automatic movement was just completely overhauled by our watchmaker.
