1958 Vintage Rolex GMT-Master 6542 Spidered Gilt Chapter Ring Dial with Bakelite Bezel Insert
Case & Bracelet
Excellent and unpolished case that shows some wear from use. The red and blue bakelite bezel is also in excellent condition. There are several spots of blistering where the paint is separating from the plastic but there are no major cracks. The casebook is engraved “Nelson Parker 1960” . The caseback has not been polished and still has the very rare to see “oyster case” still legible on the caseback.
Excellent swiss rivet bracelet with 12 links and 80 end links. The bracelet shows light stretch from age.
Excellent glossy gilt dial that shows spider cracking patina with warm sandy markers and matching hands. The lume plots glow faintly when exposed to UV the fall off quickly. The hour and minute hand are relumed and glow but quickly drop off as well. The 24 hour hand and second hand have not been relumed.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
