The black portion of the dial is fading to a beautiful brown hue. There is no depth rating visible on the dial There is no signs of removal or fade too the delicate glossy portion of the dial above Submariner. The luminous material of the dial is consistent with radium lume from this time period. The lume on both the dial and hands is lightly spotted from age. Both the hands and the dial react the same under UV light which makes us believe the hands came out of the Rolex Factory like this.

What Customers Are Saying

Adam K.

New York, NY

Buying vintage is all about buying the seller. In this case, HQ Milton is the best in the game when it comes to Rolex.

Amazing customer service. Straight shooters. Watch was perfectly described. Thanks guys! Couldn’t be any happier.


Albert L.

USA

Top-shelf experience all around. They and the rest of the staff were all terrific – casual but professional, clearly very knowledgeable, with zero sales-y-ness and no frills. And the watch is exactly true to the pictures provided on the website.

Would highly recommend to others (including myself but I don’t think the wife would approve of a second visit anytime soon).


John B.

London, United Kingdom

Jacek and his team were open, transparent, enthusiastic and friendly. At no point did I feel under any pressure to make a purchase, I was shown literally dozens of beautiful vintage watches - the enthusiasm and passion for what these guys do was evident.

Now I’ve met the team, I’d have no hesitation in dealing with them online, I can honestly say it was a pleasure….they even recommended a great place to eat for my wife and I afterwards!
