An unusual vintage Rolex non-Oyster model with a gold filled case.
During the 1970’s Rolex and their sister company Tudor watches, started making corporate incentive watches that used non-Oyster cases. Most were made in the USA and some were solid 14 karat gold while others were gold-filled.
This watch is a 14 karat gold-filled model fitted with a 17 jewel Rolex automatic perpetual calibre 1520 movement.The movement was just serviced by my Rolex trained watchmaker and is keeping excellent time.
The back of the watch is engraved JTD 1953-1973. The dial appears to carry the logo of a printing company with the initials MC.
The watch measures 36 mm wide by 39 mm long and can be supplied on a black or brown leather strap.
