Brand: Rolex


Movement : Auto cal 1580

Reference: 1019

Diameter : 40mm

Year: 1979

Serial : 61XXX

Case: Beautiful case still thick and with angles still very present. Bezel in perfect condition. Caseback stamped 1970 because Rolex used all the old 1019 casebacks still in stock because the model was not produced that much over the years. Last series of case. Original brass dust cover. No significant visible shocks. The watch has been lightly polished and worn in the past but keeps a beautiful case. Movement specific to this reference and cal 1580 model. The milgauss have always had a movement exclusive to this model in order to guarantee its proper functioning even in the presence of a very strong magnetic field that another non-professional watch could not withstand.

Dial: Beautiful and rare original white dial with luminescent tritium square hour markers (square lume). This dial is rarely found on the late 1019s, but it is likely that Rolex used the spare parts (dial, hands and case back) that it had already produced in 1970 to mount the rest of the 1019 production as the caseback almost always marked 70. Superb homogeneous patina of the original indexes and hands. Very nice general set. Dial still in good condition with no flaws. Almost nowhere to be found and highly sought after in this configuration. All the tritium in the indexes and hands react on the UV and then turn off (original).

Bracelet : Rolex acier blindé  ref 78360 endlink 580 en bon état

Our opinion: Un bel exemplaire d’une des références les plus rares chez Rolex vintage référence 1019. La Rolex Milgauss avec son cadran blanc et indexs carré et écriture Milgauss en rouge. Un must have d’une collection Rolex, modèle produit jusqu’en 1980, cette montre fait partie de la dernière série de 1979, numéro de série 61XXXX dernière série de 1019. La montre est en bon état, son cadran d ‘origine un des plus rare avec square lume avec une superbe patine des indexs qui matchent les aiguilles avec le rouge bien visible ! Montre rare dans cet état car elles avaient quasiment toutes un cadran de service. Un très bel exemplaire collector et en très bon état avec son bracelet oyster blindé très agréable à porter.
