A Beautiful Vintage Datejust 36 with an Engine-Turned Bezel on a Jubilee Bracelet from 1974, in Excellent Vintage Condition

Launched in 1945, the Datejust was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch with a window displaying the date at 3 o'clock on the dial. It has remained a constant in the Rolex collection ever since and maintains a steady popularity among watch lovers. 

What’s On Offer 

This is a beautiful example of the Datejust 1603 reference with the engine-turned bezel on a Jubilee bracelet. A 1974 example, this watch has been well taken care of over the years and the warm silver dial is simply stunning with applied dial furniture in polished metal and a subtle cyclops at 3 to magnify the date wheel. The bezel and bracelet are both well maintained but do show signs of wear - nothing of concern given this watch is coming up 50 years old! The classic lines of the Datejust simply never go out of style - it is a timeless piece that will see the wearer through casual wear to formal occasions and everything in between!
