Rolex Advertisement circa 50/60’s
Great looking and rarely seen black dial semi Bubbleback Rolex Oyster Perpetual automatic watch dated by the serial number on the case, 709186, to approximately 1950. The black dial with raised numerals and the hands are both original and have the original radium lume that was used in this period.
A slight paint loss has been noted to the text that would normally appear on the lower central part of the dial, just a hint of gold paint remains (likely from cleaning dial), text on upper part of dial (Oyster Perpetual) and text at very bottom (Swiss) are in tact and perfect. A serial number, 30856 appears on the movement. The case has two reference numbers, 6084 between the lugs and 6108 inside the caseback. Rolex was known to sometimes change case backs and crowns when the watches came in for service if deemed appropriate and this is likely the reason for the different numbers and a slightly more recent original Rolex crown. The watch runs well and keeps good time on the wrist. The crown screws down and releases without issue, and winds and sets as it should. Photos are magnified and show details not seen by naked eye, the case measures 34 mm across (not including crown) x 40 mm lug to lug x 14.2 mm deep.
