Other: Here at watchsteez.com, we are big fans of the iconic Rolex Day-Date. When we found this rare Waltham "Red-Arrow" automatic watch, we immediately noticed the design resemblance for only a small fraction of the price (Rolex Day-Date watches can be rather expensive). This particular Waltham comes with fantastic red accents that really bring the watch to life. The pop of red color on the seconds hand and day-date discs matches the retro Waltham logo perfectly. If you look closely, you'll notice there is even a subtle red outline surrounding the day aperture on the dial. Speaking of the dial, it features a quality sunburst finish and unique beveled hour markers. The sharp engine-turned bezel makes the case feel much less ordinary. In summary, it's hard to beat this cool conversation piece for the money. As an added bonus, our watchmaker just completely overhauled the movement.
