Rolex 16753

Hi guys,

A friend inherited a watch from his late grandfather.

It is a two tone 16753.

Three questions:

1) Does it look real?

His grandfather was not particularly wealthy so he has doubts and I have never really come across one of these.

2) What are these currently worth?

In case he wants to sell it as I could be interested.

3) Is it a watch that is worth him keeping or me buying?

He doesn't wear a watch so would not get much use of it. I have others so it would probably not get worn too much but it would be my first "vintage" watch.

Thanks a lot and please post some pictures of your 16753 if you have some.

The quality of photos does not allow to conclude. But for 16753, the more desirable version is nipple dial, brown dial rootbeer. The black dial does not get much loves unfortunately.

Check the engraving and font of case serial and model number and perhaps can identify if it is correct 16753.

Yes, the rootbeer from back then is definitely a beautiful watch.

Here is a picture of the serial:
