This Vintage Rolex watch is in overall excellent condition with light wear to the bracelet, case, bezel and crystal. The case appears to have been polished and has some scratches. The dial has aged from black to a consistent brown color throughout. The edge of the dial around the numbers towards the edge has aged a bit lighter than the center of the dial and has developed wear and has a crazed look when inspecting under a loupe. The lume in the hands has been color corrected and match the color of the lume on the dial very well. The lume on the dial has aged to a pleasing pale yellow/greenish color. The lume on the dial shows signs of degradation. The Oyster rivet bracelet is in good condition with light wear and light stretch between the links. The crystal has light wear.
