1967 Rolex Oyster Perpetual (Ref. 1024) Gold Cap "Tropical Dial"
This 1967 Rolex Oyster Perpetual (Ref. 1550) Gold cap is eye catching. The dial which has gained a stunning "Tropical" patina paired with the original Rolex gold cap case is striking. Rolex starting in the 50's created a process to cap the case with gold. Unlike other watches of this era, Rolex created a process that involves paring a stainless steel case with a gold cap or sometimes known as a gold shell. This creates a more affordable way to enjoy a gold case Rolex without sacrificing quality of movement and precision that is Rolex all together. This piece paired with the brown crocodile strap that provides a classic and first class look which we absolutely admire and love!

The case of this Rolex 1024 is in great condition! The case remains in original condition with some serface patina but case retains the original Rolex gold cap which was offered from Rolex starting in the 50's into the early 80's. This Rolex Oyster Perpetual (Ref. 1024) will come on a handmade crocodile strap.
This dial has aged and taken on a wonderful "Tropical" patina that kinda reminds us of a starburst. The tritium lume plots are all intact and show no lume degrade. The hands are also original and also have a wonderful patina that matches the over all feel and patina of the dial. This is a truly stunning and special piece!
None. Watch is running well and keeping time but service history is unknown.
