The Grey Sigma  Datejusts come in an array of dial colors and versions. The present watch has one of the nicest 'basic' colors, the slate grey. The stainless steel & white gold Datejust blends nicely with the grey dial to a pretty monochrome look but with a touch, the color is really elegant. This watch has seen some wrist time and we believe it was a daily companion of the previous owner. The overall condition of the watch is what we would call raw and genuine brings lots of character. Last but not least this watch is presented with the original punched, dated and stamped Warranty Certificate from Taiwan. This is one great example as a first Rolex which you'll never forget.

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.
