Rolex Precision 18k 1966

Among vintage Rolex, the Precision line remains under-appreciated, and this reference 9659 J easily shows how unfair that is. 

This Precision comes in a very good condition with a good-preserved case and dial, especially with this nicely designed hour markers and hands.

This particular piece is carrying some extra history on the case back with the engraving "La Rai a Renzo Del Frate 8.-1-1967". Unfortunately we don't have any more information on this engraving, but is seems to be a name and can easily polished away, if wanted.
