PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

This used Rolex watch is in very good condition with only few light surface scratches as well as some slight stretch to the bracelet consistent with age.

used Rolex Thunderbird DateJust 16253

By Paul Altieri

The Datejust "Thunderbird" Turn-o-Graph is characterized by a distinct 60-minute rotatable bezel in precious metal. This feature predates other more well-known Rolex tool watches, such as the Submariner and GMT Master, making it the first timepiece in the brand's catalog to feature a timing bezel. The ref. 16253 is the two-tone variant of the line that also boasts a barked finish on the bezel, a five-piece link Jubilee bracelet secured by a Fliplock clasp, and a champagne dial topped with yellow gold indices and central sweeping hands. As a member of the Datejust family, the Turn-o-Graph also features a waterproof Oyster case and a Perpetual movement.

    I believe they are trustworthy. Their products are exceptional and match their descriptions.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
