With highly attractive black lacquered dial. This specimen is absolutely desirable for the very beautiful stainless steel tonneau case with screw back and crown and fluted white-gold bezel. Moreover, it also bears a jubilee bracelet and Rolex deployant clasp. The dial, as previously said, is in a very cool black lacquered material with applied baton style indexes and has been retailed through the Cuba-based jewelry Joyeria Riviera. Located in the luxury “Galiano Boulevard” in Havana, Joyeria Riviera was part of the very few retailers allowed to have their name printed on the dial underneath the Rolex and model’s name. The overall very good condition of the watch, displaying sharp milling on the bezel, as well as a crisp lugs, make this watch a rare find.
