Watch details

This piece offers several layers of uncommonness. The dial is, of course, the first bit that catches your eye, however the original Rolex factory Florentine finish bezel is an attractive compliment. The reference number specifies that this watch should have this rare bezel. Beyond the rarity, the watch is aesthetically beautiful. The color really pops! 36mm. 18k yellow gold. Ref 1611.

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.
