31mm / mid-size stainless steel Rolex Datejust model 6824 with classic silver / baton dial on Jubilee 62510 bracelet. Dating from around 1981, this watch is in very pleasing condition. Unusually, it has been fitted with a synthetic sapphire glass that is not by Rolex, to update the older and more easily marked acrylic glass. We don’t as a rule approve of such work, but this appears to have been very well executed, it modernises the watch and tests well for water-resistance (as always, provided the crown is screwed down). Comes with a later Rolex box, Oyster booklet, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. This model correctly has the 2000-series calibre Rolex movement with no “quick-set” facility for changing the date at the end of a short month. Our Rolex-trained specialists Phil or Paul will be delighted to demonstrate how to set it. The nearest NEW equivalent is now £5,900 !
