Oyster Perpetual Chronometer- Superb condition, MINT like condition, the case, extending Swiss made stainless steel rivet bracelet, and the entire set of dial and hands are in superb condition. This watch is a 1954 produced time piece from the III quarter, at the height of the Explorer age. This is also a semi bubble back, with the very unique 745 caliber, the super sprung balance wheel is considered a Super balance, and the time keeping is still quite good. A veritable find of a watch ...
The unique thing about this watch is the bezel, it has a coin edge bezel, with the hour markers in prominent fat polished portions, and for the 12 o'clock position a indentation inside the fat polished portions indicates the Midi- hour. The bracelet on this watch has 12 links, and has a Swiss Made stamp, but nothing else is mentioned apart the fact that it too, has a date stamp ! 4 - 54 indicating the bracelet is from the 4 quarter of 1954. A side note, the case back has the words 6303 and in old style font, for ROLEX, underneath all this is a very simple "18" written along at the bottom of the case back markings. IMVHO everytime I have seen this "18" that has always indicated BREVET+ cases, and or Patent Pending cases. Very unique!
The movement is in perfect condition, and rare watch indeed. The Dauphine hands are in stainless steel, with a dark seconds hand.
