An iconic manual ultra-thin
My 6099 from 1958, Cal 1003 inside, and an interesting gold-flecked
effect dial. It's hard to photograph the way it sparkles in the light. The VC boutique watchmaker confirmed the case is unpolished. This
is the case shape that inspired the Historiques Ultra-Fine 1955
reissue, but there is more definition in the attachment of the lugs than in the re-issue, which adopted a more fluid transition to the case with lugs that extend to the depth of the case. Notice the case sides in the original
are brushed to distinguish it from the bezel side and lugs. Which do you prefer?
