The present lot is an example of a Type E reference 3646. The Type E's are distinguished by their lack of Rolex signatures on the case and movements. The present 3646 recently underwent restoration at Officine Panerai, which included a re-manufactured dial with Superluminova and a complete service with extreme care made to retain original components and finishes, including remarkably retaining its original crystal.
