FS: Vintage 1960s Rolex Thunderbird 1625 ~ Gold/Steel ~ Nr Mint

For sale is a *really clean* example of a 1960s Rolex Thunderbird Turn-o-Graph 1625. All is original on this piece down to the yellow gold crown. The bezel is sooo crisp and shows nearly zero wear. The solid gold dial is the best I’ve ever seen, perfect shiny finish, showing only a slight spot between 11 and 12.

The watch is keeping great time, though I have not had it serviced over the last 4 years I have owned it. For a serious buyer, I will take it to the watchmaker and send you a movement shot/serials; it is excellent condition visually and mechanically. I don’t have the proper wrench for the case back.

The case back shows evidence of polishing. Nice croc band.

I would probably never have sold it, except to make space for an earlier 6609.


I have a decade of references on ChronoTrader, WatchUSeek, TimeZone and eBay (secretsquirrel72). I’ve started a new Instagram for my vintage watches @lavintagewatch. Los Angeles Based.
