Nice Datejust with a sharp, unpolished case. Beautiful and unusual blue dial and original early Jubilee band. Please note that the dial shows a barely visible discoloration on the very edge of its flat area, which is typical of galvanized colored dials, especially blue and cognac light brown. The same happens usually also around the luminous dots, even though in this case they appear to be mostly in very good shape. Very good looker.

Case – In stainless steel with stainless steel fluted bezel Movement – Rolex, self winding caliber 1570 Dial – Galvanized blue, straight white gold markers Band – Original stainless steel Jubilee band

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.
