The Rolex folded-link Oyster bracelet with 357 end pieces is in excellent condition showing mild stretch and retaining 11 links.

DIAL & HANDS

The silver mosaic dial is beautiful, and the texture adds a unique depth to the watch as a whole. The dial itself shows some light aging, but remains in great overall condition. The tritium lume plots have aged to a handsome creamy patina, under U.V. light inspection the 4 and 6 o'clock lume plots show degradation, all the other lume plots remain full and round without degradation. The original hands were professionally restored with tritium to match the dial. The silver date wheel is era correct with open 6's and 9's.
