Offered here is a very honest 16800 with a great dial that is turning a tobacco shade of brown. The watch still has its original 'open 6 and 9' date wheel (and 16, 19, 26 & 19!!)
The watch is a 7 mil serial and has a dial that was originally gloss with the WG-surround hour markers. This one has turned into a matte finish which is now turning brown and looks great with the naturally faded insert and patinated insert pearl. The hour plots have turned a lovely creamy colour. Watch comes on a well worn 93150 Oyster bracelet and correct 593 endlinks. The bracelet has stretched to the point that the links are 'chewing' into each other and given lateral play in the links which has worn some of the inside of the lugs (see photos).
Includes a number of receipts for work carried out over the years (by a Rolex AD and a Rolex service receipt), original hand-written papers and slash insert box.
This is a very honest watch that has been worn by the original owner every day since he bought it - it's no safe queen! I have been wearing it on a NATO and it looks great and would make a great daily wearer for the next owner.
Reduced to £3400 for this watch including RMSD in the UK. Returns accepted if not authentic Rolex watch.
