Focus 1133B Transitional

Like the Chronomatic 1133 variant this dial has a beautiful glossy metallic blue dial. Again the transitional should have an early calibre 11 movement and the square "transitional" steel hands. It should have cream lume or the recently discovered blue lume which the chronomatic varaint also has. It's assumed the blue lume variant was pre cream, before they discovered the ideal configuration perhaps. This metallic dial again was only produced for a short space of time before the matt blue dial became the norm in early 1970. It is excpetionally rare to find a transitional with a mint dial, with blue lume the rarest (only 1 or 2 blue lume ever seen - Dec 2010)
