Condition Report

This watch was serviced in 2018 by Rolex service centre at Kings Hill, Kent, including full dismantling, replacement of worn parts, refurbishment of case and new replacement strap. In light of this, the watch back has not been removed for the purposes of this report in order to maintain current integrity of seals. The watch has been used sparingly since servicing and so remains in generally good condition with negligible signs of wear. The cyclops has some abrasions to the top and there is a single luminous dot from one of the hour markers which has come adrift. Movement winds, sets and runs. Not tested for timekeeping or guaranteed. Water resistance not guaranteed.
