Apart from that I can see no other damage. The dial is FULLY signed "ROLEX" in black painted lettering and'Swiss Made' on the bottom of the dial. It has painted Arabic and numerals bordered by a black minute track which is in good original condition.
The beautiful steel'spade' style contemporary minute, hour and minute hands are in excellent condition. This is a really lovely dial in excellent original condition. The crystal is brand new plexi and as such is in mint condition. This is a beautiful and absolutely genuine ROLEX FULLY SIGNED AND NUMBERED HI GRADE cal 548 15 jewel manual wind movement. It has a beautiful finish and is FULLY signed on the top plate in a beautiful typesetting, showing its true ROLEX roots.
The watch winds smoothly and sets with ease. It is in full running condition and has nice quiet operation and has just been FULLY SERVICED by my watchmaker. The watch is keeping good time as tested over a 12 hour period.
The stainless original crown looks genuine to the watch, and is in excellent condition showing slight normal wear. The standard pattern for this military watch was not to have a chain ring and it is rare to find one that has not been altered by someone drilling a hole through the bow to add a chain ring. This watch has no drilled hole which is is as it should be.
This lovely ROLEX watch is complete with what looks like its holder or protective brass case. The case has lots of dents with what looks like service use and has a letter'C' stamped on the lid. THIS IS A FABULOUS AND RARE MILITARY ISSUE ROLEX TIMEPIECE. IF YOU ARE AN ENTHUSIAST OR COLLECTOR YOU WOULD BE MAD TO MISS THIS HOROLOGICAL BEAUTY. I have described all of my items to the best of my knowledge.
You may only return an item if there was a mistake made by me in the description of the item that I have overlooked. Please remember that vintage watches have survived for many decades by being treated well. Vintage watches are not for wearing while doing yard work, working out, or swimming.
Vintage watches cannot keep time like their quartz cousins and will need altering on average between +-2 to +-5 mins per day. They are a little more destructible than modern watches. Vintage watches also require periodic service and cleaning. Every couple of years, they would like their 20,000 mile checkup, oil change, and general service.
By taking care of your vintage watch, you will have years of great service, and a quality heirloom to pass to another generation.
