The excellent case is believed to remain unpolished retaining strong factory finishing and thick lugs. The smooth stainless steel bezel shows little to no wear from use. The Rolex 78350 Oyster bracelet with 557 end pieces has been previously polished remaining in good overall condition showing minimal stretch and retaining 12 links.


The stunning grey sunburst dial is in excellent condition. The tritium lume plots have taken on a lovely creamy patina, under U.V. light inspection the 8, 9, and 10 o'clock lume plots exhibit light degradation but remain intact. The original tritium hands match the dial nicely and exhibit no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The metallic date wheel is era correct with open 6's and 9's.


None. The watch was recently serviced and is running at spec.
