I’d say it’s had some ... ‘enthusiastic’ (or repetitive) polishing over the years, look at the back of the 11:00 lug in your third photo. The bezel flutes look reasonably sharp, however.

I am not the expert you need, though - I expect clearer, larger pics of the dial will be helpful.

I don’t have much insight, but just wanted to say beautiful watch. I’ve been really wanting a blue dial DD just like this for a while now. For some reason I think it’s just a beautiful combination on this model.

It’s had some polishing but that is really a personal preference. Love the blue dial on the 4 series.

Honestly, the only real detractor to my eye is the missing bracelet. It's been polished a bit, but so has virtually every DD from that era.

It's not necessarily missing the bracelet. These also came on leather/croc straps, and I don't see any end-link marks on the back of the lugs. It probably came on a strap originally.

But I understand you probably mean you'd prefer it with a bracelet.

A good looking watch. The details and price would determine my level of interest. A 50 year old watch or older does nothing for me if I am going to wear and use it. I have owned watches in this age group and they are difficult to service, find parts and stay original. I also want a PM Rolex watches on a bracelet. I think they look better and have always looked like they are missing something without the bracelet.

That dial looks identical to the one RSC put on my WG model recently. I love it, but not on a YG watch.
