FS: Rolex 1675 Long E with fuchsia insert

    Hey Guys,

    This one is a beauty, with dial paint that is nearly flawless. A few areas where lume is pockmarked and the 6, 9 and 12 lume plots have a tiny amount of scarring from hand drag. Very hard to notice if not magnified. The case is nice and fat, the tops of the lugs were re-satinized and the bevels detailed. Case sides appear original.

    The hands were relumed, movement serviced and case detailed at ABC watchwerks in LA in dec. of 2016.

    Serial # 29611xx, and inner caseback date of II.71 place the production in the second quarter of 1971 which (I think) was near the final run of the mark 1 "Long E" dial series.

    When I purchased this piece several years ago it came with an all black insert which I have lying around somewhere and that can be swapped if you do not want the fuchsia.

    Bracelet is a later 78360 H, in nice shape with minimal stretch. If set at maximum length should fit wrist up to 7.25"

    Date wheel shows correct open 6 and 9

    My pics tend to exaggerate flaws, and I am always a bit queasy about shipping high dollar watches, so I would greatly prefer a local (NYC, NJ) sale so you can check this piece out prior to purchase. But in the event that I am unable to sell locally, I will be happy to ship.

    Asking $18,000 usd for watch with the pictured fuchsia insert, $15,000 with all black insert.

    If we do a face-to-face I can be a bit flexible on price.

    I accept pp (f+f or you pay fee) or bank transfer. No trades considered at this time.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me for questions or additional pics.

    No returns unless misrepresented.

    Thanks OF!

    Plenty of offers for the insert, but only a few nibbles for the complete package.

    If I am able to hand off the complete package in a face-to-face I would be willing to be a bit flexible on the price...

    I've never seen a 1675 that made my heart skip a beat until this one with the Fuchsia Insert - WOW!
    What's the standard offering when you're out of Dead Presidents? Is it a lung or a kidney, maybe both?
