Official Birth Year Thread!

Letís see them.

A 1966, 5513.

Have the original riveted bracelet but took it off for safe keeping and wear it with a NATO or leather strap.

Official Birth Year Thread!

Not a birth year collector, but those are some nice pics and the Ď64 PCG GMT would work!

I like the birth-year thing. I'ved decided I'm going to try to acquire one of each Rolex reference produced in 1969. This is going to be a lifetime goal as I only have one so far!:

OMG, you are right. Not to mention it's not on the original riveted bracelet or was it sheepskin leather? I forget...
