The previously lightly polished case is in wonderful overall condition with thick and symmetrical lugs that display honest signs of use. The smooth stainless steel bezel shows light signs of use and has been lightly polished in the past. The later Rolex 62510H Jubilee bracelet with 574 end pieces retains 19 links that show some stretch and will fit up to a 7 1/2 inch wrist. 


The silver sunburst dial is in exceptionally well-preserved condition showing no marks or age. The tritium lume plots have aged to a lovely yellow coloration and show no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly with no degradation present when inspected under U.V. light. The metallic date wheel is original with closed 6's and 9's which is correct for this era. 


None. The watch is keeping time perfectly, previous service history is unknown.
