The model is an attractive 34 mm. , water-resistant, tonneau-shaped, 14K gold wristwatch, certified chronometer, Reference 1002, Oyster Perpetual Rolex with « Underline » dial. The model comes with a smooth bezel and acrylic crystal, an original brushed silvered satin “underline” dial with early style tapered gold applied indexes, luminous gold Dauphine hands, a sweep center second, an outer minute and second black division. A seemingly subtle detail truly set this watch apart: the underline mark below the Oyster Perpetual signature, which collectors and historians hypothesize as signifying Rolex’s use of tritium on the dial. The underline is absolutely correct when one considers the serial number.
