The vintage Rolex Lady-Datejust is often characterized by a 14 karat yellow gold finish as well as a thicker acrylic crystal over the dial, an older-style 26mm Oyster case, and a dial topped with luminous material. The used Rolex 6516 is a two-tone variation of the Lady-Datejust line that features 14 karat yellow gold and stainless steel. A dramatic black dial offers a nice contrast to the steel and gold finish and displays the time via yellow gold index hour markers and hands and Tritium luminous material that has aged to a lovely patina. The date is ever-present at the 3-hour marker and boasts a Cyclops magnifier for an easier reading at-a-glance. A classy brown leather strap bracelet accompanies the case and creates a style that is ready to wear while maintaining an attractive entry-level price.

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.
