In the new models dial where the Grand Tapisserie motif is more pronounced, the date display is located closer to the dial's edge. 41Mm diameter remains the same but the total height is increased from 9.8mm to 10.04mm. The movement of of the new model, which looks similar to the Ref.15202 Jumbo's, is among the revisions.
