Description

Magnificent Rolex 1957 GMT 6542 totally 1000% original. When the term “Barn Find” is used, it rarely truly describes the item correctly. This is a totally unmolested, completely original watch from 1957. Geiger counter still reading over 3.07 on the original Radium in the dial. Everything is correct including the 1961 recalled Bakelite bezel insert replacement. Just take a look at the prices being asked for the red backing GMT inserts, from $6,000 up to over $10,000. This watch has likely never been polished, retains original “Full rail” Gilt dial, original hands, roulette date disc and Rolex plastic crystal. Bracelet is also fully original from 1956 and is in spectacular condition. This watch has also retained its original Chronometer Certificate, showing both movement and case number correctly matched. Seriously rare find and I’m offering at a very reasonable price. Like all my other listings this can be seen in my store in Tavernier in the Florida Keys. Thanks for looking
