RARE 1966 Rolex Oyster-Perpetual (Ref. 1013) 18K YG "Oversized Case"

The Rolex Oyster-Perpetual Ref. 1013 is a rare and sought after reference. The most interesting draw of this reference is its unexpected 36mm case. Considered "oversized" for the Oyster-Perpetual reference range as the majority of this model is 34mm. This gives you a unique look from Rolex, giving the wearer the larger size of a Datejust with the simplicity of a non-date dial.

The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly and exhibit no degradation under U.V. light inspection.
