Original gilt gloss dial is absolutely stunning. The dial is ultra glossy and has no damage. The top layer of lacquer has completely crazed throughout. This is only visible from an angle and is actually quite beautiful. The luminous is perfect, as are the original hands which match exactly. The luminous and hands still glow, as they should.
Original case has seen some wear over the years, but the original edges are still intact. The serial and model numbers are visible between the lugs. The bezel insert is beautifully faded and creates a nice contrast against the dial.
Light brown suede strap and Rolex buckle.
This is a fantastic example of a very late 5508 with an incredible gilt dial. A great watch to add to any serious collection.
