Here one I always wanted to have, but never came to find one... Limited to 1000 pieces, in steel. 1993. Credit picture: Christies.
The one which accidentally left my collection: The famous 7 Days, first generation, with its plexy glass:
The Portuguese Seven Days Perpetual Calendar in platinum, issued in 2003 in a limited edition of 250 pieces. Credit picture: Chronotek. I never owned it, but always had a soft spot for it.
And one I loved, but I let it go because my heart was taken by the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater. The Portuguese Minute Repeater, circa 2003 / 2004.
