Bracelet Rolex Two-Tone Jubilee

The strong case shows signs of being previously lightly polished, retaining full and even lugs, showing little wear from use. The yellow gold fluted "coin-edge" bezel is believed to remain unpolished. The original two-tone Rolex Jubilee bracelet remains in remarkable condition showing little wear and exhibiting normal stretch for its age.


The original dial has taken on a wonderful cream patina that gives the watch a charming and unique appearance. The radium lume plots show signs of aging and darkening but remain bright in color and exhibit no lume degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original yellow gold "dauphine" style hands match the dial perfectly exhibiting no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original and rare "roulette" date wheel is era correct to the watch and creates and excellent vintage feel the watch.


The watch was fully serviced and running at COSC spec backed by a 1-year warranty on movement.
