Case, movement, and dial signed

12 link 7836 Bracelet with 580 endlinks - some stretch, and it appears to have been lightly hand brushed (not so with the watch case itself), however the bracelet seems correct and original to the watch

The watch case (unlike far too many of this reference) appears to be unpolished - of all the Rolex Tool / Sport watches, rather fittingly wears its years proudly, with typical surface abrasions, some small loss to the bezel paint inlay - the lug bevels do still appear present though, and overall the case is thick with its correct proportions

The dial is flawless with no marks or imperfections to remark of

The lume has aged to a light cream, and the plots show the subtle waffle texture synonymous with watches of this era

Comes with 11.00.71  inner and outer box

Service history unknown, however the watch is running at an amplitude of 249 and at +4 s/d
