Re: Fantastic 1163 / Maybe with the Heavy Red Accents on Dia

: Congratulations on this one!!

: Seems that this one might have the heavy red accents on the dial .
: . . I'll need to study it further, and it would also be great if
: you can send me the complete serial number.

: And the 1/69 on the clasp of the bracelet is also special!!

: Great watch!!

: Thanks for sharing!!

: Jeff

Thanks Jeff, yes it is special.

First batch of cases,

a lot of them Chronomatics and mine one of the first 141.2xx.

At Christies this year Chronomatics where sold with a later serial number 141.3xx.

I think too, that the accents are the heavy red ones like the Chronomatics.

At 3-6-9-12 only three white 20sec-accents are visible on each side,

the later produced Viceroy have four 20-sec-accents on each side of the red accent.

So i hope you will come to the same point of view.
