this is a very unique pointed crown guard, how often u see a military issue pilot watch that see action?
it is also one of the last 1963 issue with pointed profile and it has a highly saught after tropica dial.
2 moths ago, a similar pointed 5513 with military unit incribe at the case back sold for $25000 in ebay, besides its underline dial i think the military background does contribute to the record.
ok, come to this watch, serial 1.08 million, both model and serial visible at both lugs, case back correct dated 63, the main case is not polished at all, u can still see the side sharp profile on the lugs.
the dial has turned to light choc colour, as seen on the scans, it has some marks but overall still a beauty.
the small triangle hand is a replacement, movement is an older 1560 version correct for the year, runs well but not recently serviced, fitted on a light folded jubilee band.
do not miss out this watch if u are collecting "military issue/version of sport rolexes".
