    Holy cow, Roscoe! That's a nice one- at least from what I can see on my phone.

    I know Mr. Rolex James Dowling was always saying he would get his treasures like that pressure checked and then enjoy them without too many worries.

    I don't have anything uber rare or valuable but I tend to agree with him.

    If you've ever been on a motorcycle you've taken a far greater risk than getting an old Sub wet. That used to be what I told My bike riding buddies when they called me crazy for wearing a 6000 dollar Rolex to work. Grin.

    Puts it in perspective for me at least!

    Enjoy that beauty! :thumbsup:

    I'd wear it.... BUT I'd make sure to screw down the winding crown before wearing the watch! :loupe:

    Same here - someone (others) have worn it for decades after all, and it's survived. Why not wear it now :thinking:

    Gotta be. I think this is the original crystal also. It has a cigarette stain tint.
