It a very nice example of this model and has been appreciating in value for decades and will only continue. Model number 6580, serial number xxxxxx c. 1957, the serial number has been scrubbed off by years of contact with the band, see last photo. This watch will come with our sales receipt with model number, serial number, and authenticity noted. It will also come our Certificate of Authenticity (COA).
Last week the Perpetual winding Rolex signed cal 1030 movement with sweeping seconds hand was fully inspected, it is running perfectly. At that time the watch case, case back, crystal, and bezel were professionally polished and satin refinshed leaving the watch scratch and dent free. The case measures 34 mm wide excluding the crown (it's an average sized mens watch for the time period, not oversized, and looks great on ladies too).
The winding crown is the original twin lock screw down crown with Rolex coronet. It screws down nice and tight.
The coin edges on the case back show no improper tool use. The band is a non Rolex made ZRC brand quality hand made French leather strap. The dial appears to have never been refinished and is near mint. The pictures have been taken from every angle and represent the watch well, in fact they are 3x magnified, the dial is beautiful, and the watch is polished to a perfect shine. Any imperfections you see in the shine are just reflections the camera caught.
This is a beautiful example of this model. EVERY MAJOR PART ON THIS WATCH IS GENUINE ROLEX EXCEPT FOR THE BAND AND BUCKLE.
If any major component of the watch is not genuine Rolex (the movement, case, case back, bezel ring, winding crown or bracelet) it is clearly stated in the item description above. We exclude unsigned individual parts like gaskets, bracelet spring bars, crown tubes, crystals, hands, etc. From authentication as they are not Rolex signed.
