Its case presents as mint, and, despite what the photos seem to suggest, all of the original serial number and Rolex coronet markings are fully readable.

Its original dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Rolex factory done even under low magnification.

A Master Watchmaker has just overhauled the movement, which is very clean. It continues to run strong and keep time.

For the finishing touch it has been equipped it with a brand new leather strap and aftermarket Rolex style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
