Description

Extremely rare early Turnograph in steel & pink gold with jubilee band in steel & pink gold too! The name "Thunderbird" was given to these watches after the U.S. Air Force elite "Thunderbird" team was wearing it on their missions.

There is a story behind a vintage watch.
Besides the obvious fact that traveling down the years,
a watch absorbs the energy of time and history, it often has a significant story to tell, based on the purpose it was originally made for.
