CASE & BRACELET
The excellent case remains unpolished, featuring crisp factory finishing and dimensions with light signs of honest use. The smooth stainless steel bezel is unpolished as well with light signs of use. The unpolished case back retains its strong factory finishing. The Rolex 78350 Oyster bracelet with 557 end pieces retains 11 links that show almost no stretch from use.
DIAL & HANDS
The original blue sunburst dial is both beautiful and in excellent condition, there is some light aging around some of the lume plots which is very common on blue dials from this era. The tritium lume plots have aged to a handsome golden coloration and exhibit no degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly and show no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The metallic date wheel is original with open 6's and 9's.
