It is fitted with a Cal. 1003/1, whose finishing appears to differ from the earlier Cal. 1003 iterations. But I tend to enjoy these later interpretations of the classical 1955 ultra-thin dress watch: it is not an hommage like the contemporary "Historiques...

I am a budding collector, wearing the treasures too rarely and not trusting myself to open the cases!
