Description

It is indeed the most precious treat for a watch collector to find a vintage watch that has never been polished. The significance is that there has been no metal erosion over the years, from encounters with a jeweler’s polishing wheel. On these unpolished gems, one gets to see the watch’s original proportions. On gold watches, one can only hope to find an original unpolished case with rich rainbow patina like this watch has. Just look at the picture of the clasp on this watch. Talk about an horological orgasm! Never polished 18k case with rich patina is 36mm with plastic crystal, screw down crown (operating perfectly), fluted gold bezel, automatic winding Rolex Caliber 1556 with 26 jewels, and rare gray dial with applied golden hour markers and golden hands. Serial number 1415XXX dates production to 1965. Original 18k President bracelet with moderate stretch with large logo clasp.
