Notes: For your consideration we have a highly desirable early Snowflake Ref. 7021 from 1968. It is commonly known by collectors that the early 7016/7021 Snowflakes had the dials that had the dry rot this one being from the first year of production and still retaining its original while many were replaced. This dial while it has the texture the color matches the faded bezel insert nicely and the patina on the makers are quite pleasant.  The case on this 7021 has been polished and recut, two of the lugs are a little thinner. What makes the 7021 special above the later 9411 snowflakes is that it came with roulette date wheel and this example has retained its original.  Something about a snowflake with a red date that just sets it apart. This example while no safe queen has that charismatic vintage look and feel that just makes you love wearing it.
