A truly stunning example of a 1969 Rolex with factory blue "Shantung" no date symmetry dial with its silky mosaic style fibre dial it is extremely beautiful and uncommon to find in this condition.
The reference 1002 non models is a staple Rolex reference. The inclusion of the machine turned bezel makes this model stand out from the crowd.
This classic and easy to wear watch is paired on its original oytser bracelet in good condition showing minimal stretch for its age. It will fit up to a 7.5 inch wrist.
The lume plots are all in tact and have developed a lemon patina. The hands are matching.
The Shantung dials in our opinion are some of the most mystic and elusive watches Rolex made and stand out a mile compared to the normally sedate silver or black dials which also have their place.
A super cool Rolex OP.
