Our opinion: A beautiful example of one of the rarest references at Rolex vintage sports model reference 1019. The Rolex Milgauss with its black dial and square indexes and Milgauss writing in red. A must have of any Rolex collection, model produced until 1980, this watch is part of the rarest and most sought after 1968 mark I first series, serial number 18XXXX first series of 1019. The watch is in good condition, its original dial one of the rarest with square lume and white writing with a superb patina of the indexes which match the hands with the clearly visible red milgauss! Rare watch in this condition because almost all of them had a more readable white dial at that time. A very nice collector's example and in very good condition with its later oyster bracelet but more comfortable to wear.
