I have an R serial 1016... very similar but wasn't a complete set. I think the 1016 was the closest Rolex ever got to a perfect design!

Stunning piece. I'm new to the forum, but drifting towards vintage pieces in recent months. Would love to find one of these from my birth year ('87), but for now I'll just gaze from a far and enjoy. Congratulations sir. That is a beauty.
