Additional Information

A beautiful La Petite "I" variant. Picked this gem up on eBay as a 50th birthday present for my mother, and just recieved it today. I've never really dealt with a ladies watch before, and was stunned at how small it is!

Solid 14k white gold case, 12 very small diamonds. Looks to be in excellent shape and seems to run very nicely. Came with the box and original price tag. Band looks to have been replaced, as the adverts that I've seen all show cord bands. From looking at adverts in the database, it looks like this variant was changed to "J" for 1957.

Lovely little watch, and I can't wait to surprise my mother with it later this month!

I bet she'll love it! I think I see 5306 on the hang tag, that does match up to to the "I" variant and 12 diamonds.
