The Dial is in a condition, that is highly sought after by collector's, unmolested and unrestored this fantastic Original factory Dial has aged beautifully over the years.
It is lovely to see a Original, unmolested Tudor dial as they seem to be prime targets for the Re-Dialing monsters.
This is the original Untouched Vintage Dial and what a superb one at that.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Top Quality Rolex Oyster Stainless Steel Case.
The very well proportioned 33.3mm case with those gorgeously designed twisted bombe lugs, strong bezel and this case wears beautifully and somewhat larger beyond its 33.3mm measurement on the Wrist.
It displays a real presence and its fair to call this one a head turner.
The Case is in fantastic condition for its age with no real marks to write home about at all bar a few age related scratches, which are barely worth mentioning, in this circa ,62 year old timepiece.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 36.2mm
End of lug to lug: 42mm
Lug Spacing: 19mm
This Case was rated Water resistant back in the Day, it is now a Vintage Timepiece, it has NOT been tested for Water Resistance and if you wish to Submerge this Watch, you will need to have the Watch Professionally Resealed before doing so!!

Original Hands are in very good order.
The Crystal has been lightly polished and is in good order.
Original signed Rolex screw down Crown, in very good working order.
On a new 19mm Black leather strap with steel buckle that compliments the Watch beautifully.
