    Condition: This timepiece is presented in good condition. The .925 silver case shows signs of wear indicative cases from this era in the form of toning, and indentations on case. The original dial is in very good condition, and certainly shows signs of wear in the form of fading of hour markers. Note that Rolex Oyster is printed at the bottom around the subsidiary dial, leaving space for a retailer signature at top, which was never added to this particular example. Movement runs and sets as it should. Service is recommended for daily use and timekeeping accuracy
