Additional Information

Hello,  This is another Rocket I believe.  The dial needs a crown but the case is in much better shape than my other Rocket so they may share the case.  It is from the same year so that is nice.  This is 14K rose gold filled and it is 19mm square with a 14mm band width. 

Update:  Changing this to a Ladies after finding an ad stating that detail.

Oops I marked ladies and I think it was decided this was a boys watch because of the name.  Feel free to change that.

Did they have a 2 for 1 special on Rockets that I missed?

Is this ex NASA stock ?


All 'rocket' puns aside, I'm amazed that yov've found another one, considering we hadn't seen one before your first post.

Haha  ; )

Yes I was surprised to see it.  I have been keeping my eye out for black dials and spotted it.  Too bad it isn't in better shape but I was still happy to find it.
