Rolex 6542

This vintage Rolex 6542 GMT is the first generation GMT as it has no crown guard, it comes with a smaller arrow for the GMT and it comes with a pressure fit gilt dial (without the legs) from the 1950s. The Bakelite bezel has been replaced as it has been broken but considering the age of the watch, I am quite glad to be able to find the replacement parts and keeping the watch working nicely..





This is how a pressure fit dial look like .. It has no"feet"...
