This Ref.6146-8010 is nicknamed Karakusa in Japan 「唐草」 or more commonly Arabesque due to the intricate design surrounding the GS logo at 6 O'clock.
This reference originally came in two variants:While observing this reference on a flat position is certainly intriguing with its unique silver dial and beefy proprietary Hard Stainless Steel 「HSS] case, it's only when you hold it in your hands that things get more serious: It also features a 3-sided cut glass that is mesmerizing and plays beautifully in the light, which is really the cherry on top. Only made for 1 year, this reference had another variant that features a pyramid-faceted glass and was originally sold for 60,000 JPY making it more expensive than other regular sisters 61GS, and it is fairly justified in our opinion.
This example we're offering is just flawless. Most likely unused, the watch is just flawless and still retains remnants of blue protective film on the caseback.
Comes with its original box, outer box, and GS buckle, we've paired this Arabsesque with black cowhide leather straps from Accurate Form to play off of the deep silver dial with its faceted glass and create a versatile overall look.
Highly desirable and sought after by many due to its alluring blend of rarity and visual magnificence, this is one of, if not, the sharpest examples documented on the web.
