Up for grabs is a Rolex Daytona in steel and gold
16523 reference with Zenith movement
X9 serial number circa 1991 production, but wasn’t actually invoiced to AD until 1993 as code on papers shows.
Superb condition watch is clearly unpolished with factory finished. There is no wear from bracelet between the lugs, indicating the watch very seldom being worn.
Dial is original, so-called “inverted 6” in excellent condition with tritium hands.
Bezel is original, has some superficial marks when viewing at an angle from being handled, but you can see no scratches, dings or polishing.
Bracelet is original, very tight without play, fully linked (one is taken out, but included). The clasp still feels “sticky” while opening.
This is one of the most complete sets I have ever seen or had. I cannot think of a single accessory that could be missing. There is a copy of original sales receipt from December 30th, 1993 from the AD that sold this watch. There are the warranty papers with AD’s name, and watch info. The red letters date stamp on papers, which was used in US papers during this time, translates to October 4, 1993 ship date from Rolex to AD.
There are both hang tags, one with serial number matching to the watch, of course. There is the original bezel protector. There is the 1993-1994 Rolex calendar. There are both manuals and Rolex service booklet that would come with new watches. There is the Rolex paper sleeve.
There is the Rolex wooden box with outer “Jubilee” box. You see a sticker on outside of the box that reads “J575”. This same reference number is found on the inside of the watch’s lug, hand inscribed (see pictures). It seems that this is how the AD kept record of watch’s accessories to make sure the correct ones were issued at time of purchase. This surely reinforces the fact that this box is original to this watch and the kit wasn’t just put together later on from random sets to make it “complete”.
