Re: FS: 1967 Rolex Milgauss (Ref. 1019) Box, Papers, Hang Ta

Original hands have the bevel, like the hq Milton example you posted.

Service hands, like on your watch, are flat.


: Thanks for the response but respectfully in our expert opinion this
: statement is incorrect.
: We believe he hands are origional to the watch for a couple of
: reasons. One the hands are consistent with other 1016 examples
: from 1967 this includes the sweep seconds hand and both the hour
: and minute hands. Additionally when viewed under U.V. Light the
: tritium within the hands and on the dial reacts properly and
: shows consistency in texture, color and responsiveness to the
: U.V. Light. The watch was a one owner example that was sourced
: directly from the estate of the original owner.

: Additionally here are a few additional ref 1019 examples from this
: era that poses the same hands and are good examples of
: comparison


: If you feel that this inaccurate please advise as we are always
: learning and expanding our knowledge base
