1967 Rolex Datejust (Ref. 1603)
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 specific 1967 Datejust Ref. 1603 retains its original silver "Pie-Pan" dial and original engine turned bezel, perfectly suited for everyday wear. This piece would make a great start for a new vintage collector, or be a great addition to an expanding collection. We love the early Rolex Datejust for its simplicity and its classic sophistication.

The strong case with full lugs has been lightly polished in the past showing honest signs of use. The stainless steel engine-turned bezel remains unpolished and in excellent condition. The original crystal shows consistent crazing towards its center and signs of wear. The watch will come on a 2pc handmade leather strap.
The silver "pie-pan" dial has a wonderful vintage aesthetic and is in great vintage condition, showing light signs of aging throughout. The tritium lume plots have taken on a very dark patina, under U.V. light inspection the lume plots show some very light degradation. The original hands were restored sometime prior to our acquisition with lighter lume. The silver date wheel is era correct with open 6's and 9's.
None. The watch is functioning flawlessly, previous service history is unknown.
