anyone got a vintage Rolex Precision Manual?

I just picked one out model 6427. Like the looks --what accuracy to expect ? Mine is about 16sec fast per day. it is circa 1967. Is this ok?

Saluti ! I have a 1942 6422 and it runs at a steady loss of about 6 secs. a day .Not
bad for a 68 yr. old , eh ? I like the fact that it's nice and light on the wrist and also
people do comment on it's simple elegant style. Enjoy !!!

Let me give you an accuracy update on the 68 yrs. old 6422. I haven't checked it
against another timepiece for about 10 days , last set it from the atomic clock transmission from Rugby , England. Today at 1300 Hrs. I heard the pips on a B.B.C.
Radio station and on the very last pip I glanced at my watch......2 seconds Fast ? No,
can't be I thought , sooooo.......into the next room to check Rugby clock......2 secs.
fast ! Spooky but true , them thar Swiss build pretty good watches eh ?
