Other: Is this the perfect summer beater? We think so... It already has some honest wear, so you don't have to stress about knocking it around. We found this watch locally with its original papers and booklets. Given that it had no recent service history, we opted to give it the royal RSC treatment. The service was just completed on May 31, 2022, accompanied by its green two-year Rolex warranty card and new style Rolex leather service pouch. They did not polish or refinish the watch or bracelet. With this watch, you get the perfect blend of vintage and modern being that this is an early example of a 16610 with Tritium lume, but still features a sapphire crystal and quick-set date. In order to guarantee factory water resistance throughout the Rolex warranty period, a new factory Rolex AR-coated sapphire crystal, stainless steel Rolex Monobloc crown and case tube, and fresh gaskets were installed at the time of service.
