The impressive case is believed to remain unpolished, showing strong and original factory dimensions and finishing throughout with honest signs of light use. The stainless steel engine-turned bezel is unpolished as well and exhibits crisp groove and minimal signs of use throughout. The unpolished case back also retains its original factory finishing. The Rolex 78350 Oyster bracelet with 557 end pieces is dated later and was sourced with the watch, it retains 13 links with absolutely no stretch and will up to a 7 3/4 inch wrist.
The original blue mosaic dial is in beautiful vintage condition, showing no notable damage and light aging that is both subtle and tasteful. The tritium lume plots exhibit no degradation under U.V. light inspection and have achieved a vibrant yellow coloration. The original tritium hands have age darker than the dial, which is common, and show no degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The metallic date wheel is original with open 6's and 9's.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time perfectly, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
