1957 Rolex Two-Tone Datejust (Ref. 6605) W/ Roulette Date Wheel

The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and beloved made by Rolex. Launched in 1945, it remains a timeless classic and is instantly recognizable as an item of superior quality and functional design. The Datejust can be worn just as easily with a suit as it can be with jeans and a t-shirt. The Datejust would make a great start for a new vintage collector and is always a great addition to an expanding collection.

The strong case shows signs of being previously lightly polished, retaining full and even lugs, showing little wear from use. The yellow gold fluted "coin-edge" bezel is believed to remain unpolished. The original two-tone Rolex Jubilee bracelet remains in remarkable condition showing little wear and exhibiting normal stretch for its age.


The original dial has taken on a wonderful cream patina that gives the watch a charming and unique appearance. The radium lume plots show signs of aging and darkening but remain bright in color and exhibit no lume degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original yellow gold "dauphine" style hands match the dial perfectly exhibiting no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original and rare "roulette" date wheel is era correct to the watch and creates and excellent vintage feel the watch.


The watch was fully serviced and running at COSC spec backed by a 1-year warranty on movement.
