In vintage times, in the midst of their high output of utilitarian sports watches, Rolex also made much more elegant dress watches. These fine wristwatches often combine a superior mechanism with beautiful aesthetics. The vintage Rolex made for the U.S. market showcased in today's offering is a beautiful original example of this phenomenon. It features fine understated and elegant styling and a superbly executed handwound movement. From our experience more often than not this model was done as a presentation piece - this wonderful example was original factory emblazoned with the Optimist International logo and the back is lightly engraved "Distinguished President." According to their website optimist.org, "Optimist International is a worldwide volunteer organization made up of more than 2,500 local Clubs whose Members work each day to make the future brighter by bringing out the best in children, in their communities, and in themselves." We are pleased to offer the watch in beautiful condition. The two-tone silver dial is original and in excellent condition (the aging shows up more strongly in the photos than it does in person. And the case is near mint. The movement is near pristine. Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled it and it is running very true. Photos of the inside available upon request. For the finishing touch we have installed a brand new crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
