Just have some fun on a slow day; as everyone is getting ready for the new year festivities. Found a milsub bezel, but no watch, so for the time being, it is on my daily beater. Fresh look, eh?

Like the insert on the early BCs! Interesting watch. Was this a production model?

That bezel / insert wouldn't fit a 1680 my friend

I know it has been sold as it is, most interesting part
is that from the 2-3 examples known, mine is the
only one having necessary " Swiss - T smaller then 0.25 Msvr"

Check these 2.... not logic at all as dial has lume on
index and hands but no 'international sign' stating
that the dial was having tritium. To me, these below,
are not Rolex and imho test dials or maybe even very
cleaver cleaned from a already partly missing track.
Rolex would never sell / offer a tritium watch without
stating it officially on the dial......






And mine...



As always, it's about detail & common logic

Best to YOU!

The absence of minute markers on the dial is indeed pleasing. It gives the watch a clean look. Put on a milsub bezel, and perhaps, this should have been the way the Manufacturer should have done it! LOL.
