Titoni Cosmo Sixty Six: The Double Double.....

Is a double SIX: 六六大顺

I always love the number six on a dice. It is the biggest and when playing with board game, it usually means you have the bonus turn to toss the dice.
Titoni since it establishment has always playing with number in naming their watches. We have Airmaster 707, Airmaster 777, Airmaster 808, Cosmo 2000 and Cosmo 3000.... the list continued..... At one stage during the 1960's those in Titoni were frantic and superstitious with double double numbers; for example Cosmo 22, Cosmo33, Cosmo 88 and the one that I wrote about Cosmo 99 36,000bph

Here is a Titoni Cosmo 66. This is in a square mirror finishing stainless steel casing measuring 36mm x 38mm.

This Titoni has a lovely faceted crystal. The dial is silver colour with a blue chapter ring with silver hour markers highlighted in white colour. The red 5 pedals blossom flower and Titoni emblem just underneath the 12 o'clock position.

the word Cosmo and the 66 digit emblem are at the 9 o'clock position and the words Rotomatic and 25 jewels counter balance on the 3 o'clock position. This watch is with the day and date function and the day date window is strategically located at the 6 o'clock position. 

This watch uses the ETA 2789 25 Jewels automatic movement. The day date can be quickset using the crown. The ETA 2789 has a frequency of 21,600 bph and a power reserve of 45 hours. This watch has a slightly bold ruler or baton hands with a black insert in the middle. It also has a smooth sweeping silver second hand. 

This watch still with its original stainless steel with a signed clasp. 

With this range of watch, the screw in backcase is decorated beautifully with Titoni logo and Cosmo 66 wordings engraved on the center. 

Thirty three, Sixty six, Eighty eight and Ninety nine are all prosperous numbers..... Maybe wearing a watch like this daily will bring the very best of luck...... a massive fortune is coming MY WAY!!!!!
