    Hello

    Can anyone confirm if this model existed? As far as I know Ref. 1500 has thin hour indices only. This one however has thick ones. received_452579375922597.jpeg received_2277391655718363.jpeg

    Here’s mine, a tropical gilt dial 1500 date on its original stretch 7502 rivet with boxes and papers from 1963-4. Originally bought in Eden Yemen. According to the papers. Might even have had a British military connection?
    In the sun it’s just sublime with a sparkle from the radium.

    With my gilt 1957 UG gilt black dial. As the Rolex should look without the sun (both radium dials).

    lovely watches. Are the sword hands correct on the 1500?
