Description

Here we have for sale an extremely rare and unique watch from my personal collection.

A 1.2 million serial Rolex date watch from 1965 it has the most unique tropical gilt dial you will ever find.

A great thick case, strong lugs, classic engine turned bezel and rivet bracelet all complimented with a perfect movement having been serviced by Rolex UK last year and keeping great time.

But that is not what is so important with this watch. The stunning part of this watch is the dial.

An early 60’s gilt dial where the black gloss has turned an amazing brown.

The lacquer layer above the gloss is perfect – no marks or scratches whatsoever – and the gilt printing on the lacquer again is 100% perfect. It is simply the original black gloss paint layer between dial plate and lacquer that has turned brown and the result is breathtaking!

The watch will change colour dramatically depending on the light – from a deep chocolate brown to a very light caramel colour in direct sunlight. It really has to be seen to be appreciated.

If you are a collector of gilt dial or tropical dial watches or simply want something NOBODY else will have then this is a truly unique piece and not to be missed.
