The thick case shows signs of being lightly polished in the past and retains very strong and symmetrical lugs that exhibit light signs of use. The smooth stainless steel bezel is also in excellent condition with light honest signs of use. The original Rolex 7205 Oyster-Rivet bracelet with 57 end pieces is stamped 2/67 and retains 12 links that show some stretch from use.


The stunning original non-luminous dial has achieved an incredible tropical patina in a unique "camouflage-like" color scheme, displaying deep gray, green, and gold tones throughout. The dial itself is in exceptional condition, showing no signs of damage. The luminous material in the original hands has been professionally restored to show a handsome ivory coloration. The metallic date wheel displays closed 6's and 9's which is correct in this era.
