It has been appreciating in value for decades and will only continue. Model number 5015, serial number 633xxx c. This watch will come with our sales receipt with model number, serial number, and authenticity noted. It will also come our Certificate of Authenticity (COA).
Last week the Perpetual winding Rolex signed Bubbleback movement with sweeping seconds hand was fully inspected, it is running perfectly. At that time the watch case, case back, crystal, bracelet and bezel were professionally polished and satin refinshed leaving the watch scratch and dent free. The case measures 32 mm wide excluding the crown (it's an average sized mens watch for the time period, midsized by todays standards, and looks great on ladies too). The coin edges on the case back show no improper tool use.
The band is a non-Rolex brand very old padded leather band which just looks at home on the watch. We normally put new bands on these, but it is better with the vintage strap. If you want to swap this strap for a new one we would be happy to do that free of charge. The dial has been professionally refinished, was very well done, and looks like new with luminous that glows in the dark. This watch has a clean vintage look.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. This is a beautiful example of this model. EVERY MAJOR PART ON THIS WATCH IS GENUINE ROLEX EXCEPT FOR THE LEATHER BAND. All of my watches come with a 30 day satisfaction and mechanical guarantee, our Certificate Of Authenticity, and our sales receipt. We do not recommend Rolex Bubbleback watches as every day watches, they are not shock resistant and less water resistant than modern watches.

If any major component of the watch is not genuine Rolex (the movement, case, case back, bezel ring, winding crown or bracelet) it is clearly stated in the item description above. We exclude unsigned individual parts like gaskets, bracelet spring bars, crown tubes, crystals, hands, etc. From authentication as they are not Rolex signed.
