Notes

The particularity of this watch is that its dial bears only the mention "SWISS". 
In 1999, the use of tritium was banned. Rolex then produced dials with a new luminescent paint: Luminova. For one year only, the dials bear only the mention "SWISS", before the "SWISS MADE" dials appear from 2000 onwards. 
This watch is accompanied by its original box and papers. Timeless and conserved in good condition, it will perfectly complete or start your collection of "new vintage".
