WRUW 1/28-2/3/18

#1 Post by adam78 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 9:27 am

New arrival for me, Rolex Oyster ref. 6298 "big bubbleback", 36mm, similar in case and movement to the first of the Explorers in 1953 (ref. 6350, 6150), though this example dates from 1956. These have gone up in value since the Explorers have shot up.

I was wondering where I saw that amazing font and I went through
some old photos and found a Rockcliffe that had something similar.
Very cool font indeed.

Makes one wonder whether they might not have been using the same subcontractor to make dials?
