Estate very rare early 18K RG Speake-Marin Serpent Calendar enamel dial 38mm watch
Not often does one get the opportunity to acquire one of the early 38mm 18K RG Serpent Calendars from Peter's early work. This watch I sold originally at the end of 2004. This execution is the very first Serpent Calendar watch Peter made. It features the white enamel dial with black numerals. It was the first one in the very small series of less than 20approx. watches ever made in 38mm. Note that this has Peter's original design buckle, with the screws, that unfortunately got replaced with a smoother edged buckle due to people whining that it kept snagging their trouser pockets!
Sporting the FW2012 hand assembled and finished caliber from Peter, based on the tractor motor ETA 2824 with it's large balance wheel for highly accurate timekeeping when correctly regulated by a skilled watchmaker.
It comes with all the original papers and boxes and has been serviced by Peter's service watchmaker in upstate New York, and has a one year warranty on timekeeping.
It is fitted with a brand new Burgundy alligator Speake-Marin strap.
Peter's latest 42mm Titanium model sporting a single hour hand, an updated version of his original one handed watch, the superb "Shimoda".
A white lacquer dial with those lovely elegant elongated roman numerals and the stunning blued steel hand. Dial markers allow for reading the time to within 5 minutes, which after all is a place worth getting to in life!
A fun feature is the topping tool motif that is the central part of the hour hand and is also the running seconds in the middle creating a playful kaleidoscopic motion when the watch is running.
Featuring the new automatic Vaucher based caliber with the 2mm thinner new Grade 5 Titanium Piccadilly polished and brushed case.
