Price: $499.00 (No Trades)For sale is a classic GEVRIL Ref. A0111: (#2999). The simple steel model with 18k gold accents on the bezel and dial. Its 39mm diameter is stately and proper, the thickness is 10mm. Strap width is 19mm. The case components are nicely sculpted: ribbed sides avoid the monotony of simple squared surfaces; the notches on bezel and case back align to provide continuity of form; the bezel slopes from the crystals edge to meet the case band and lugs, giving an already fairly thin watch the illusion of being even more so. The dial, set fairly deep in the case to accommodate 3 layers of hands, employs a tasteful variety of textures and depths. The central pattern steps down to a matte ring which borders the hours chapter with black roman numerals. Finally, a matte ring with applied black dots forms the outer boundary. The flat sapphire crystal is flawless. The black hands of proper lengths are thin and dressy but slightly curved and provide contrast for easy reading of the time. The long counter-balanced seconds hand suggests the accuracy of an observatory chronometer. It comes on a burgundy Audemars Piguet alligator strap.The Gevril is powered by an ETA caliber 2824-2. As this watch was originally priced in the $2000-$2500 range. The 2824 within is a high-grade edition which easily runs near COSC-mandated accuracy. It is claimed that these early Gevrils were produced by Audemars Piguet. The condition is excellent.
