1969 Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36mm 1018 - Serviced

Description

 

This is a rare example of the reference 1018, the Oyster Perpetual that was produced in the 36mm (Datejust-) size. It is considerably larger than the usual 34mm OP and with the flat bezel and without date magnifier it's a very plain and elegant watch, which is not easy to find. These watches have 20mm lug sizes and this one has just been serviced and comes on a later 78360 bracelet with one year warranty.
