-Description

The Datejust is Rolex's signature automatic watch. It was born in 1945.
It is widely known as a watch that is instantly recognisable from its distinctive appearance.

Reference 1603 is a vintage model manufactured from the 1960s to the late 1970s.

It looks a little similar to the Datejust reference 1601, but the difference is that this 1603 has a stainless steel engine-turned bezel, while the 1601 has a white gold fluted bezel.

The engine-turned bezel, which is more finely decorated than the fluted bezel, is somewhere between elegant and sporty.

The fluted bezel is made of white gold, which changes colour with age, whereas the stainless steel bezel is more consistent with the case.

The case is in very good condition and has passed the 3 bar water-resistance test.

The rounded plexi crystal and the dial with one step down at the outer edge are also unique details of a vintage Datejust.

The dial is a silver dial with a sunray finish. Although it has changed slightly due to aging, it is in excellent condition with almost no visible corrosion.

The main feature is the 'wide boy' hands and indexes, which are wider than usual. The multi-faceted indexes look as if they have been sandwiched together.

There is some slight corrosion when looking at the hands very closely, but only visible under magnification with a loupe.

The movement is automatic Cal.1570. 
This movement is highly accurate and durable, having passed chronometer certificate, and is easy to maintain.

The bracelet is a Jubilee bracelet 6251H, with folded links. The end link 55, and it is in relatively good condition, although it has some drooping due to its age.

Though the watch has passed water-resistance tests, water-resistance is not guaranteed by our warranty.
