jackcousteau1665



Congratulations to the owner of the PPDRSD which was previously owned by Philippe Cousteau. Sold by Antiquorum on September 30, 2014 in New York. The final sale price of $183,750.00 USD is expected due to its history.


The watch shows signs of wear which would be expected from a what its age that has been worn as a tool by Mr Cousteau. The case is a very early serial number and fall in the early prototypes. The dial is a desirable and rare mark I. The condition of the dial is somewhat disappointing due to its condition.   


Provenance is king and this watch with incredible provenance is it.
