Let´s call it the SubDayDate? Owner claim the watch was made by special order at Rolex like this for his father. Looking at the dial and font I do not see any indications of aftermarket job. Could this really be...all original Rolex? Rumour has it that Greek King Konstantin II had a similar version made when he saw this watch at the local Copenhagen Rolex dealer.




Bracelet indicates 4.69 (sorry upside down on the picture).

the 3/4 lume moons look right and evenly "broken" up. what kind of end links? Out of curiosity, what is the reference between the lugs and could you submit the serial number to Rolex for verification??
