The watch features a two piece solid 14k white gold circular case with applied triangular lugs that measure 42.00mm lug to lug x 35.00mm without the crown.

The watch is attached to the original black band terminating with a 14K white gold buckle signed LeCoultre. This watch features the ultra rare automatic version and it is fitted with the legendary P 812 caliber movement with beautiful rhodium-plating.
