Case & Bracelet

Excellent case that has been polished in the past. The bakelite bezel is cracked at the 12, 5 and 7 o’clock sections of the bezel but is original to the watch. There is some light discoloration on the bezel due to age. The caseback is stamped: 6542 IV 56

Excellent Shell Cordovan Strap


Dial

Very Good Gilt Chapter Ring Tropical Serpico Y Laino Dial. Most of the lume has flaked off the dial with age. There is some light chipping on the dial above the R in Rolex, to the right of the 5 o’clock marker and, over the last S in SWISS. The black portion of the dial has aged to a brown hue. The hands have been relumed at some point but the 24 hour hand appears to be original.


Accessories

None

The watch is running at COSC spec.

What Customers Are Saying

Robert E.

Wilmington, NC

Overall, this was a truly fantastic experience buying a vintage watch. I was very happy with the advice and and my purchase in the end. Kazu and HQ Milton have earned their reputation and my experience lived up to expectations.

Before I purchased the watch of interest I scoured the Internet and could not find a comparable price for what I purchased. I’ll be back.

Thanks Jacek and your Sales Team for your awesome prices and the exceptional Customer service! I will be buying 2 more Rolex watches from you guys this year. Cheers!

If you are looking at buying a Rolex watch, from a vintage Rolex to a newer Rolex, don’t look anywhere else, I highly recommend that you buy from HQ Milton in San Francisco. You will be glad you did!

In general, there are a lot of low-integrity people dealing in high-end watches looking to take advantage of new/budding collectors who want to buy their first or second serious timepiece. HQ Milton is the opposite of that.

My entire transaction with this group was professional, speedy, and honest, and the price was very fair. HQ Milton is an excellent business. Buy with confidence.
