The excellent case retains thick and symmetrical lugs that show minimal signs of previous polishing and honest signs of gentle use. The white gold fluted bezel exhibits light signs of use and subtle polishing, remaining in excellent overall condition. The original Rolex 6251H rolled-link Jubilee bracelet with 55 end pieces shows some age and retains 21 links that show normal stretch for the style and age of the bracelet and will fit up to a 7 1/2-inch wrist.


The original silver sunburst "pie-pan" dial is in great condition and features a charming vintage aesthetic with no scratches or notable damage and gentle aging throughout the dial edges. The tritium lume plots feature a dark patina and all remain intact with subtle degradation present in some of the plots when inspected under UV light. The hands are early tritium service units and feature an ivory patina that matches the overall aesthetic of the watch nicely. The metallic date wheel is original with "closed" 6's and 9's which is correct for this era.


The watch is keeping time, but the service history is unknown. A movement service can be provided upon request.
