Rolex 6605 yellow gold

Early Rolex datejust watch

This is a true collectors datejust, its one of the earliest datejust references and 18k yellow gold watches where extremely valuable in the 1950’s. The condition of the watch is fully original and well preserved. The case is strong and the bezel is extremely sharp too, the watch is fitted on the original rare Big Logo jubilee bracelet, the bracelet condition is good but shows wear on the links and the clip has been professionally¬† restored in the past (see last picture).

The dial of the watch deserves some extra attention, besides the untouched and beautiful condition it is the same dial as featured on the Rolex 6305 from Konrad Adenauer, also the patina of the dial shows many similarity with the former presidents watch.
