DIAL
Original rare blue / purple dial

Original blue dial with that has turned purple. Similar to brown tropical dials, many of these blue dials changed colour to purple due to exposure to sun, making each one unique. Signed “T Swiss T” indicating the use of tritium luminous on the dial. The dial has not been touched by us and remains in excellent original condition with small signs of age.

CASE

Ref. 17000 in stainless steel with smooth bezel. The 7.5 million serial number denotes the year of production to 1983. This reference features a sapphire crystal with a “Cyclops” magnifying the date display. The case & bracelet have been professionally polished by us giving the watch a stunning aesthetic. It features an original Rolex Oyster Twinlock screw down crown.
