This is a classic manual winding Rolex Oyster from the 1950s. There are a few models from the early 50s namely Rolex Speedking ( which is smaller in size) and the Royal, slightly larger Rolex. This is a classic watch with elegant design and is light weighted and nice to wear.
This watch has a special engine tuned bezel and a nice original white dial that has matured into a nice cream colour.Previously, one can find lots of these but these are getting rare especially in very good condition.
