The stainless steel Lady-Date is an often overlooked gem that boasts immense character, classic Rolex design, and, most importantly, an attractive pre-owned Rolex price tag that will appeal to collectors of all budgets. The vintage example that is presented here today pairs a versatile brushed stainless steel finish with a sophisticated white dial set with doorstop and Roman hour markers, older-style tapered hands filled with Tritium luminous material, and a distinctive red and black Roulette date wheel. The case was initially waterproof up to 100 meters, which has protected the automatic movement within from years of wear to continue to produce highly reliable readings today.

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.
