Watch details

This is a lovely 18kt yellow gold Rolex Datejust with original 'Tiger Eye' dial. The case on this watch is strong and the 18kt yellow gold Jubilee Bracelet is in nice condition and not overly stretched. This watch even has its original green Rolex Sticker on the back of the case. The original Tiger Eye dial is special. Unfortunately, if you look closely their is a small hairline crack on it. Even with the slight hairline, this watch is still collectible and rare. This piece also comes with its original papers.

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.
