The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and most beloved Rolex watches ever made, even though the Datejust was launched in 1945 it has remained a timeless classic and is instantly recognizable as an item of refined quality and functional design. The Datejust can be worn just as easily with a suit as it can be with jeans and a tee-shirt. The DateJust would make a great start for a new vintage collector, or be a great addition to an expanding collection.
This early example 1958 Datejust Ref. 6605 retains its original and very rare SWISS only "Pie Pan" salmon dial which is highly sought after among collectors. The case is sharp and the lugs are thick, free from any blemishing or scratches. The original coin edge white gold bezel is stunning and original to the watch. This piece would make a great addition to any expanding collection. We love the early Rolex Datejust for its simplicity and its classic sophistication.

DIAL & HANDS
The rare and elusive original Salmon SWISS only "Pie Pan" dial is in stunning vintage condition, showing a light patina throughout the dial. The lume plots have taken on a lovely dark coloration. Lume plots at the 5, 6, and 7 o'clock markers are missing, the rest of the lume plots remain fully intact. The original "alpha hands" are in exceptional condition showing minor oxidation, matching the overall presence of the watch. The lumed hands remain fully intact and match the dial patina perfectly.
None. The watch was fully serviced and running at COSC spec backed by a 1-year warranty on movement.
