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 There are a few minor marks to the dial but nothing offensive at all.
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 Bi-Metal Stainless Steel and Gold Case.
The very well proportioned 34.3mm case with a solid Gold Fluted bezel and this case wears beautifully and somewhat larger beyond its 34.3mm 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 ,almost, 70 year old timepiece.
The Gold fluted bezel is in lovely condition, the ridges are still nice and proud.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 37.2mm
End of lug to lug: 41.1mm
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!!
Hands, Crystal and Crown
Original Hands are in good order with some age related patina which you can see in strong light.
The Crystal has been changed during Service, we have replaced it with a Bubble Crystal so it's as close to the Original you can get.
Original signed Rolex, screw down Crown, the Crown has had a Gasket change and it screws tightly to the Pendant Tube, which has also had a Gasket change.
On a new 19mm Bisonstrap tan brown leather strap with steel buckle that compliments the Watch beautifully.
