RESERVED – Stunning 1960 Steel and Gold Rolex Oyster Datejust Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the steel & gold Rolex Oyster Datejust from 1960. The steel and gold (fluted bezel and crown) case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed very slightly ivory/cream dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The applied gold spear head batons along with the gold hands provide the softest contrast to the dial and are perfectly framed by the gleaming gold fluted bezel. The high grade Rolex signed automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful piece we’ve added a new, super high quality, dark brown Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches ‘London’ alligator skin strap with gold plated Hirsch buckle

Our asking price is below the value for a watch of this condition and rarity, particularly with the continual rise in value of vintage watches of this high quality. In view of the high grade Swiss movement, I will include a three month written guarantee on the movement, which is long enough for you to assess the working order.
