-Description

The Datejust, Rolex's most famous automatic watch, was created in 1945.

It is widely known as a watch that anyone can recognize at a glance from its distinctive appearance.

The Datejust mechanism, which instantly changes the date at midnight, is considered one of Rolex's three greatest inventions, along with the Oyster case and the self-winding Perpetual mechanism, and the Datejust collection is the culmination of all of them.

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

It looks a bit similar to the same Datejust Ref.1601, but this 1603 has an engine-turned bezel made of stainless steel.

The difference is that the 1601 has a fluted bezel made of white gold.

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 color with age, while the stainless steel bezel is more consistent with the case.

This is a matter of preference.

The case has not been polished in our store, but we believe it was polished before that.

The rounded plexi crytal and the dial with one step down on the outer circumference are also details unique to vintage Datejust.

The dial is a silver dial with sunray finish.

It has turned slightly ivory with age.

The hands and indexes are gold, a very rare combination.

Only 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock part of bar indexes are thicker.

This is one of the details that are not so conspicuous but rarely seen.

In addition, there is a sigma mark on the dial next to SWISS at 6 o'clock.

This is a feature that can be found in watches manufactured by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, IWC, and Omega during certain periods of time, but not all of them have it.

Both the hands and dial are still in the tritium luminous coating and show good signs of aging.

The movement is a automatic Cal.1570.

It is a late model with a hack function.

It has high accuracy and durability, having passed the chronometer standard, and is a machine that is easy to maintain, so it can be used with peace of mind.

The bracelet comes with a folded jubilee bracelet 6251H of the same age as the watch.

The number of links is 22, which is long enough, and the droop is small considering the age of the watch.

The watch comes with a warranty paper.

The warranty paper states that the watch was sold in 1975.

In addition to the warranty, the watch comes complete with the inner box, outer box, two tags, booklet, etc.

The watch is in good condition with vintage ageing and is complete with all accessories.
