A superb example of a very rare watch, this Rolex Datejust in rose gold from 1958 has a beautifully patinated 'pie-pan' dial, roulette (alternating red and black) date, matching ivory luminous dots and luminised sword hands (from the era before tritium), facetted hour markers and a crisp bezel bearing the narrow flutes of this early style of watch. The movement is a rare calibre, 1066, used for only about three years, and in this case is as clean as a whistle, its nickle-finished surfaces and 'butterfly' winding rotor are as silvery-white as the day it left the factory! Once Rolex's flagship, direct successor to the venerable Prince as their top model, the watch exudes quiet self-confidence. To discover one in rose gold, in such perfect condition, is indeed a very rare treat! Two-year Watch Club warranty.
