This variation of the Rolex Lady-Date boasts a considerably rare dial, which is topped with faceted dagger hour markers, long, sword-shaped hands, a Rolex logo at 12 o'clock, and Tritium luminous material that has aged to a dark patina. What's even more intriguing is that the "LadyDate" logo is placed just above the 6-hour marker, as opposed to its usual position under the Rolex logo. The dial itself exhibits some slight water damage, which is reflected in the price of the watch. The used Rolex 6516 also features an acrylic crystal over the dial as well as a matching stainless steel bracelet with three-piece links and a Fliplock clasp. A perpetual movement with self-winding technology and a date mechanism beats within the case and offers a highly 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.
