The thick case has been lightly polished in the past and retains very symmetrical and full lugs that show light signs of use. The engine turned stainless steel bezel is in excellent, crisp condition. The Rolex "U.S.A. Made" C+I Oyster rivet bracelet retains 12 links that exhibit normal stretch for the style and age of the bracelet.

The tritium lume plots have taken on a slight ivory patina, under U.V. light inspection the lume plots remain full and round, without degradation. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly, under U.V. light inspection the minute hand shows lume loss and remains stable, the hour hand remains fully intact.
