Campy dual pivot brake ID?

Hi there. So sorry to clutter up this nice forum with such a trivial request, but does anyone know what brake model this is?



I only ask because they are DROP DEAD GORGEOUS

Thanks,

—G.


EDIT: now that I look closer, maybe these are just very fancy single-pivots… blast.

Thanks very much. Of course now that I see they're single-pivot (fletsob, you will have noticed I had already added that as "d'oh!" addendum to my original post) I won't be seeking them out or anything, modern dual-pivots are so much less of a headache to center and adjust. But they sure are some nice-looking brakes!

The C-Record era was the aesthetic zenith for many Campagnolo components.
