Ca. Ø51 mm, ca. 130 g, 18 K pink gold, very rare caliber, Audemars Piguet Ankerchronometer no. 3331, screwed gold chatons, eccentric fine adjusting device, big balance with gold screws, lever escapement, Geneva striping, split seconds chronograph, signed and numbered, signed original enamel dial (very fine hairlines), 1/4 seconds register, 30 min register, blued steel hands, in working order.
