why is the face different than most ROC. I like being different. Should I buy it?

Then you have a problem

This one could be a Franken dial from a WG put into a steel case. Unless the buyer is clear about what he sells, maybe look elsewhere

I have been tempted many times as well.

But...polishing gold is a totally different story to polishing steel, due to the rhodium layer.
Assuming this would not be an issue, it is a superb watch.
All the best,

The square indices indicate that it's white gold.

The date placement indicates it's a 39mm diameter case, long discontinued (newer models are 41mm, I believe).


thanks M4 was this just a batch of ROC made during th 90"s early 2000's. Was this a special edition. [nt]

Technically the square indices indicate precious metal, since this model came in WG, YG and RG variants.

They also did a limited edition variant in platinum and steel, which has the square indices.

Yes, this is a Limited edition.

I believe it was named Kasparov, after the Russian chess champion, if my memory serves me well.
I can’t recall how many were made, but most were sold on strap and all in precious metal.

Not specially rare, though. [nt]

The YG, RG, and WG had this design face, WG is a beauty.

I would buy it.

I did it. Price was too good to be true and I have been working on my upgrades with this guy for my collection of 1. He lets me trade and pay the difference.

 By: smclark331 : July 23rd, 2020-14:33
It looks like the full WG and I didn't pay that much.  thx guys

Looks like a 26022BC with aftermarket bracelet

I have this model, but with the original factory strap in black. Great watch with a nice solid and weighty feel.
