Watch details

This dapper watch is noted for its unique “wide boy” dial, with fitted original hands to match the beefier-than-average markers. The watch is in mint original vintage condition and will look well with any attire. While we are not selling this watch as unpolished, appreciate the truly superior case condition for a piece from the 1960s. Have fun changing the attitude of the watch with different straps. 36mm. This watch is not accompanied by any accessories. Stock 44014

THE FIRST DATEJUST 1945

The year 1945 saw the birth of the Datejust, the first self‑winding wrist chronometer to indicate the date in a window on the dial. A watch of great distinction, the Datejust was equipped with a Jubilee bracelet created specially for it and a fluted bezel, making it immediately recognisable as a Rolex. It is the pillar of the Oyster collection. Initially for men, it became available in various models for women in the course of the following decade.
