A friend of mine is in the market for a Sub on the lower end of the price range. He likes the vintage look and found a 1989 with a decent amount of patina in his price range. He’s been asking the seller questions and he’s been very responsive. The watch seems to be running mechanically very well. One thing that’s concerning him is the material inside the 12 o’clock “triangle” appears to be chipped. There’s obviously some “ageing” in the hands as well. I don’t know much about vintage Rolexes so I offered to post the concern here with some pics and see what the community’s opinion is of this. Is it completely normal? Just part of the vintage thing? Or would this be concerning to you and a no go.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
