Today's offering features a very rare model 3065 hooded Bubbleback made in the 1940's. Produced in very limited numbers, these "rigid hooded" watches are one of the most desirable Bubbleback models and contrast the plainer Oyster watches.
All of the parts are original to the watch down to all of the hands and crown. The solid gold and steel case is in excellent condition. The Rolex + Oyster crown screws down fully, and has a half turn of thread life left. The dial has been previously restored. Please inquire if you would like a new high quality restoration performed on it.
It has just been freshly serviced and is running very true.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
This is a special opportunity to own a rigid hooded Bubbleback.
