31mm / mid-size Rolex Datejust in 18ct yellow gold, model 68278 with decorated, golden Mother of Pearl * / roman numeral dial on President 8389 bracelet. The watch has also been fitted previously with a custom-made diamond-set bezel, NOT by Rolex. As loyal devotees to the Rolex brand we are not great fans of customised pieces and will not supply such parts on customer request, but when our pawnbroking departments are left with one already fitted like this there always seems to be a queue of buyers! Comes with Datejust booklet, UK papers from Watches of Switzerland dated June 1999 and a later Rolex box. It is in very pleasing condition, the bracelet showing only moderate signs of age / wear. The last time a NEW equivalent was listed in the Rolex UK price list (with just a plain gold, fluted bezel) it was £20,800…and prices have generally risen about 5% since then!
