The Rolex Lady-Date 6516 from the late 1960s boasts a distinctive vintage aesthetic via a thicker acrylic crystal over the dial, older-style index hour markers and hands, and luminous material in a slight patina. The case boasts more generously tapered lugs than modern variations and wears on a matching stainless steel Jubilee bracelet with less solid five-piece links and a Fliplock clasp. Incredibly desirable among avid pre-owned Rolex collectors, this vintage ref. 6516 is full of character and brings incredible history to any luxury watch collection. Thanks to an initial waterproofness of up to 100 meters, the Lady-Date has also maintained a very reliable reading.

Excellent condition overall. It was listed in excellent condition, but my assumption was that it was relative to age. Despite being almost 50 years old case had almost no markings and bracelet only slight stretch. Great little watch.
