Les collectionneurs reference 4642

4642/000J

On this extremely thin (just 6 mm-thick) 1953 model, the emancipation from great watchmaking classicism took the form of a yellow gold case with horns welded to the case middle, resulting in a piece that appears to have no attachments. This design is coupled with a wide, beveled bezel, and an extra-flat shape whose elegance is enhanced by a strong presence on the wrist.
