I'm having a hard time seeing the lume dots at the outer end of the markers. Are they missing, or is it just a bad photo? Also, is the seller claiming that the bracelet and clasp are authentic, or is it being sold as aftermarket? I have doubts about it, and at the very least I would need to see more detailed photos of the bracelet and clasp (inside and out). I would also want to see the model number and serial number under the end links. Most of these were 34mm, but I think that there were some that were even smaller.

These are the entry level model for vintage Rolex and are readily available, so don't over-pay.

I just bought a 28mm mens Rolex last week and once serviced will have little problem* wearing it on a 7 1/2" wrist.



* The wife seems to have grown a little attached to this one so it may prove a slight problem.

The case and movement are legit---I'm repairing on of these on the bench today, in fact.

I'd need better dial photos to tell if it has been refinished. As mentioned earlier, it has a T SWISS T marking, but the lume is hard to see or might be missing.

Under $800 sounds like a fair price for the watch with an aftermarket band.

ok...finally got the piece.....which indeed...too small for my wrist...33mm with the crown....

perhaps will give it to girlfriend as unplanned "surprise" gift.

will try to use polywatch to remove the scratches.

also found whay it seems to be the remaining of the former lume, now it is only dark greyish dots.

is it possible to have it and the hands relumed ?

My advice, wear it for a few days, the size will start to feel normal and comfortable and if anyone comments that it looks small just blow a huge raspberry at them, what do they know?


Here's one of my favourites


27mm across and I'm no light weight


6'3" and 24 stone

As someone once said to me "Just because you can see your wrist either side of your watch, doesn't mean your gentleman sausage will fall off"
