1956 Vintage Rolex 18K YG DateJust 6609 "Thunderbird" with Service Papers
|Material||18K Yellow Gold|
Case & Bracelet
Excellent case that shows light wear from use. The 18K “Thunderbird” bezel is also in excellent condition, is sharp, and shows light wear from use. The serial number is partially obscured from end link wear.
Very good 18K D link Jubilee bracelet with 17 links and solid end links. The bracelet has moderate stretch from age. The clasp is not stamped with a date code.
Very good matte champagne dial with some patina from age present. The lume plots have turned a warm sandy hue and the hands have aged a few shades darker than the dial. All lume glows when exposed to UV and falls off at the same rate.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
