This is a gentleman's "Oyster Perpetual " two-tone model that is exceedingly handsome because it has a perfectly aged "Tropical" Dial! This is a dial that due to exposure to sunlight, as one would expect in the "Tropics", has a perfect patina that can only come with age and very even exposure. This is an extremely desirable look and highly sought after. No, the watch has not been exposed to water, just sunlight which has caused this wonderful effect over the many years of exposure. The watch is circa 1955 and is just plain beautiful in it's simplicity. The dial patina, the stainless steel chapter markers, stainless case, solid gold bezel, and stainless "Oyster" band all add up to more than the parts. Rolex really knocked it out of the park with this watch. This is a watch with great quality built-in, and a look that gives it a very kool appearance. It exhibits a 26 jewel, automatic movement that is a virtual trouble free performer. The photos just cannot do this watch justice. Can you tell that we here at Father Time think this one is a real winner? The dial has the classic Gold Rolex Logo Crown. The applied hour markers have a beautiful silver polish that has aged right along with the dial. The Rolex name is under the 12 followed by the marking "Oyster Perpetual" indicating that it is waterproof and automatic. Just above the 6 is the mark "Superlative Chronometer " which is a quality indication, and beneath that the "Officially Certified" rating. The gold crown has the classic Rolex crown logo which screws down smooth and tight to the case. The case lugs and band are a bushed matte finish in stainless steel which is contrasted by the fluted solid gold bezel. The case measures 36mm in diameter, not including the crown, by 44mm from lug tip to lug tip (for reference an American Quarter measures 26mm in diameter). I'll be amazed if we have this watch long. It is in the best mechanical condition and looks fabulous on the wrist. Running like new and fully warrantied for a year. Don't miss it!
