Hey WUS,
Up for sale today is an early Rolex Datejust ref 1603 with a sunburst silver pie-pan dial. This example is a bit special for three reasons - rare alpha hands, unique hour markers and it still retains what is possibly its original bracelet. Service history is unknown but it keeps time at +/- 4 seconds/day and date changes crisply around midnight. If youre not a fan of two-tone or blingy watches, the engine turned bezel DJs add a sporty touch to the Datejust line and wear nicely especially on a steel bracelet.Highlights:
- Alpha hands and beautiful & unique hour markers
- Silver sunburst pie-pan dial
- Rolex jubilee bracelet fits up to 7.5 wristLowlights:
- Some scratches on case and crystal commensurate with age
- Some oxidation on the hands. Not unusual for 50+ year old DatejustsAdditional Information:
