What makes this WIRSTCLASSIC unique and rare is the outstanding SHANTUNG dial. The name goes back to a special kind of silk. Shantung is a type of silk plain weave fabric historically from the province of Shandong. It is similar to Dupioni, but is slightly thinner and less irregular. The structure is very close to the dials texture, which is where the name comes from. The dial is in nearly perfect condition with the original lume making this timepiece special and unique. This piece is fitted with an original Rolex leatherstrap and the original Rolex buckle also made out of stainless steel. The watch appears to be unpolished. The case and the bracelet have alsmost no signs of use. The movement is a automatic  movement, running well and keeping time. The servicehistory is unknown but the watch runs strong and keeps time well. This is a true WRISTCLASSIC by an iconic brand. These kinds of watches were and are the best of the best in terms of quality.
