The strong case shows signs of being very lightly polished in the past and retains very full and symmetrical lugs that show crisp finishing. The smooth stainless steel is in excellent condition, showing only minimal signs of previous use. The original Rolex 6251H rolled-link Jubilee bracelet with 55 end pieces is stamped 4/71 and retains 22 links that show some stretch from use.


The non-luminous silver sunburst dial is absolutely gorgeous when paired with the smooth bezel configuration, giving the watch a large presence with a sophisticated aesthetic. The dial itself is in wonderful and near flawless condition, showing only a slight amount of age on the very edge of some parts of the dial. The original non-luminous hands are in excellent condition as well. The metallic date wheel is original with open 6's and 9's.


None. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time within COSC spec, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
