Watch is sold, please do not inquire, thank you!

Why I think this watch is interesting:
A unique chance to get a carefully worn Rolex from the first owner. The watch is in 80-85%* and has been worn with care. It has a lovely and very classic dial with Roman indices and very easy to read black hands.
I mention this below again, the watch is resized to fit a 6.5 inch wrist (16.5 cm) and there are no extra-links provided or better, the first owners wife can not find the links. There are extra Jubilee links offered on Ebay regularly and I have considered this fact when setting the price for this watch.

* I have reduced the rating to 80 to 85% after I had a very close look at the dial that shows some signs of ageing (see below). However those imperfections can not be seen by naked eye! Reto, March 2006

Details about this Watch

Price: Is firm, my margins are very small, no additional discounts sorry. Please check the Rolex overview page for the price.
Watchbox and Papers
: No box, no papers

Watch Description and Condition
: Overall 80 to 85%. Power reserve is an astonishing 51 hours yet the watch runs ca. 4 seconds slow per day. Whether this is because the watch was always in dial-up position during the power reserve test, I can not tell. But being worn and constantly worn, the watch might actually run spot on.
The acrylic crystal has some very light scratches that could easily be polished out using something like Crystal Clear or any aluminum oxide based polishing paste like PolyWatch or Autolube.

Note: The visible dial is ca. 28 mm, this is the view similar to a 5 times magnification! The stains are not visible by naked eye except for the one between X and XL if someone is shortsighted. The dial paint is nearing 30 years of age, there are some discolorations that look like "micro coffee stains" under 15 times magnification between X and XL and below the "RT" of OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED and around the date window. And there are some little elevations that I am not sure whether they are painting imperfections or simply signs of age created by ageing processes in the dial paint.
Drop me an email and I will be happy to send you the original of the above picture!

There are some slighter scratches on the clasp on the 9 o'clock side, but have a look at the next picture, they are only visible at a very specific angle and could probably be polished out entirely as they are not very deep.

We on PMWC always try to show all imperfections BEFORE you make a decision: the scratches on the side of the clasp are now not visible at all yet we are looking at the watch with a probably 4 times magnification and from the same side as on the picture above!

Both sides of the clasp show signs of really amateurish resize attempts. This one is the side of the clasp from the crown side and this one is straight and quite deep, but it is short and it looks like a glass fiber stuck to the side of the clasp since it is perfectly straight

This is the box I am going to ship the Rolex in, looks like a Wenger box

The dial is white, that yellowish tint on the dial is just from the cover of the watch box, see the wrist shot for the dial color, it is a very very light egg shell white

The wrist shot on my 6.5 inch wrist shows the beauty of this older Rolex plus its exact dial color!
