The glossy gilt dial has aged to a sumptuous speckled caramel brown, paired with the aged but nonetheless intact lume this watch takes an otherwise sober and relatively common piece to an altogether more radical place

The early alpha hands have been relumed to match the dial and sit in perfect harmony, the case is even and sharp

Text printing remains crystal sharp and totally unharmed from the passage of time

Unknown service history, however the watch is running strong and keeping excellent time

Included is a Rolex box (not original to the watch) but in keeping, plus leather travel pouch hand made for Mann About Time in Italy
