WNS-6070-4092 - Rolex DateJust - Left View

Case:  The case measures 34 mm across and 42 mm lug to lug. There is no stripping or wrench knurling anywhere on the case back. The fluted bezel is perfect and is the scarce 18K White Gold variety. The signed [Rolex crown symbol] screw down time setting crown is at the 3 o'clock position and the tube has mint conditioned threads.

Dial: The dial is a pure light satin silver background with crisp black lettering and is signed Rolex (with the Rolex symbol), Oyster Perpetual, DateJust below the 12 o'clock position and Superlative Chronometer and Officially Certified above the 6 o'clock position.  It is also signed T Swiss T under the 6 o'clock marker (which indicates it has Tritanium hands.)  The hour and minute hands are baton-style silver with radium central sections at the upper sections. The hour markers are matching with full radium central sections. The sweeping seconds hand is solid silver. There is a 60 minutes/seconds track running along the edge of the dial that is marked with sleek black lines in 1/2 second increments and a radium dot [completely intact and unmelted] marks each of the hour markers (except for the 12 o'clock position which is marked with the Rolex crown symbol.) The date function and wheel are in mint condition and all black enamel numbers are crisp and clear. The original cyclops Rolex crystal is clear with no scratches.

Movement: The full rotor automatic movement is marked Montres Rolex S.A. Geneva, Twenty Six 26 Jewels, and Adjusted 5 Positions. There are no service marks on the inside of the watch. The serial number dates it to the first quarter of 1970. 

Strap: It has the original Swiss Rolex jubilee bracelet (with all the links intact) and is signed Rolex with their symbols (in three places), Steelinox, 62510 H, Patented & Registered, and Swiss Made.

Comments: How could any watch collection be without a Rolex? It look me a long time to find this 1970 all around Mint condition Rolex DateJust, but I finally got it. This timepiece looks like it just left the factory (mint in every way possible.)
