2568: Launched in the early 1950s and in production for a decade, reference 2568 is defined by its faceted lugs, a detail most often lost with repeated polishing, but instead very well preserved in the present specimen. Interestingly, there are different variations of reference 2568: the present model with half hooded faceted lugs, but also a model with flat faceted lugs: ref. 2568-1. Then again, each of these two version was also offered without subsidiary seconds: ref. 2568-2 is the name for this version with hooded lugs, ref. 2568-3 for the one with flat lugs.
