Why I think this
watch is interesting:
* I have reduced the rating to 80 to 85% after I had a very close look at the dial that shows some signs of ageing (see below). However those imperfections can not be seen by naked eye! Reto, March 2006

Note: The visible dial is ca. 28 mm, this is the view
similar to a 5 times magnification! The stains are not visible by naked eye
except for the one between X and XL if someone is shortsighted. The dial paint is nearing 30 years of age, there are some
discolorations that look like "micro coffee stains" under 15 times magnification
between X and XL and below the "RT" of OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED and around
the date window. And there are some little elevations that I am not sure whether they are
painting imperfections or simply signs of age created by ageing processes in the
Drop me an email and I will be happy to send you the original of the above picture!
There are some slighter scratches on the clasp on the 9 o'clock side, but have a look at the next picture, they are only visible at a very specific angle and could probably be polished out entirely as they are not very deep.
We on PMWC always try to show all imperfections BEFORE you make a decision: the scratches on the side of the clasp are now not visible at all yet we are looking at the watch with a probably 4 times magnification and from the same side as on the picture above!
Both sides of the clasp show signs of really amateurish resize attempts. This one is the side of the clasp from the crown side and this one is straight and quite deep, but it is short and it looks like a glass fiber stuck to the side of the clasp since it is perfectly straight
This is the box I am going to ship the Rolex in, looks like a Wenger box
The dial is white, that yellowish tint on the dial is just from the cover of the watch box, see the wrist shot for the dial color, it is a very very light egg shell white
The wrist shot on my 6.5 inch wrist shows the beauty of this older Rolex plus its exact dial color!
