The case and crystal were lightly polished to a scratch free shine at that time also. The case measures 34 mm wide excluding the crown (it's an average sized mens watch for the time period, current standards would be to call it a mid sized watch which looks great on men and ladies too). The winding crown is the original twin lock screw down crown with the Rolex logo. The crown screws down nice and tight. The coin edges on the case back show no slipped tool marks.
The band is a non Rolex made quality USA made (not made by Rolex) Alligator skin strap with Rolex signed 18k solid gold buckle. The dial appears to have never been refinished and is in excellent condition showing very little and very even and attractive patina for its age. The majority of the luminous material has dropped out of the minute hand. The pictures have been taken from every angle and represent the watch well, in fact they are 3x magnified, the dial is beautiful, and the watch is polished to a perfect shine. Any imperfections you see in the shine are just reflections the camera caught.
