Notes:  For your consideration is quite possibly one of the nicest MKIV DRSD we have seen in a very long time and this one happens to be the rare transitional model that had very short run in production. This one is a true collector's example being right in the correct serial range for a transitional, with clear model and serial engravings and most importantly the full matching serial inside the "rounded" case-back. What sets this watch apart even more is it's incredible MKIV dial with amazing patina, original matching hands and tritium pearl. We don't like to use the phrase "unpolished" these days but examine for yourself and see the fat case, original cut factory chamfers and super thick and even crown guards. This is as nice as it gets for a any DRSD in condition, patina and originality. A truly rare opportunity to own something very special.
