Vintage 1970’s Parker Ladies Rally style watch. This timepiece is in phenomenon condition. The dial is the true highlight of this watch, with it’s chunky retro style rally – a real treat! Especially combined with the nice, chunky mint green lume indexes. The case is a nice 32mm size with an original metal bezel, while the simple, high-quality strap is the standard 18mm width. The 1960’s and early 70’s saw a massive rise in popularity of rally style watches, with the boom particularly concentrated in France.
