Gold shell,filled or rolled,some say this is the sign of "fake" for a Rolex.But it is not. A person I know has one,a Rolex 1550 that needs some TLC.The dial is in bad shape,and the movment (1575) doesn't hand wind. While I know better than to buy an watch as a project(with rare exceptions,one is better off buying a watch in good shape),I also like to give a watch a second chance. So,this is the watch: The dial: The case back: The movment: Inside case back: The dial and movment look alright to me,the back of the case looks a bit off,but maybe it's just the picture.What do you think? Do you think Rolex will service this watch( it's older than 30 years),and if so,do you have an idea of the approximate cost? If not,can the dial be restored or it has to be changed?I've noticed that is harder to find a "date" dial than a datejust dial. I know that it will cost me more to have this watch restored than to buy an 1550 in good shape(the seller is asking +1000$ for this watch head),but money aside,how difficult do you think will be to find a dial and to fix the movment? As always,I am very grateful to those who take the time to read and answer.Any opinion is welcomed,even if it's just to correct my spelling.:banghead: Thank you.
