1967 Rolex 18K YG Oyster Perpetual 1005 Champagne Dial


“Rain on Rome”

Case: The thick and even 18k yellow gold case is excellent showing only light wear from use. The 18k yellow gold bezel is sharp and shows only light wear from use.

Dial: The champagne dial is excellent showing a balanced and evenly distributed "Raindrop" patina across its surface. The broad arrow and stick markers are excellent showing only very light wear. The dauphine hands are excellent and look to be original to the watch. Much of the luminous material is missing from the dial which is not uncommon for watches from this era. The lume that remains glows brightly when exposed to UV and falls off rapidly at the same rate which is correct for these dials.

Bracelet: New Molequin strap.

Accessories: None.

Notes: An beautiful gold dress watch that has somehow escaped the dreaded polishing wheel for over 54 years now.

Inventory: fful
