It is one of the less common dress Stingrays, and features a heavily decorated dial with a circular brushed finish the outside edge and a horizontal brushing to the centre. The high polished markers combine nicely with the way the dial reflects light due to the alternative brushing makes this an enjoyable watch to wear. This was the watch that started my Roamer collection.
 
This watch is pre 1970, as the dial is lumed with Promethium, but post 1967 due to the back, and the use of a plain rehaut, rather than a chapter ring.
