A true rarity for sale: Rolex 6605 Vintage Datejust "Bubbleback" 18kt Yellow Gold Circa 1957 with White Dial and Applied Yellow Gold Hour Markers and Lance-Style Hands on an Original 18k Gold Riveted Oyster Bracelet.
Sometimes you just can't say "No", when presented with a mint+ vintage Rolex. At least we can't bring ourselves to say No. This reference 6605 Datejust is from 1957 and is still mint. It's solid 18k gold case, white dial with sublime early applied golden hour markers are just too much stimulation to the brain. And the condition: mint+. You've gotta love it!
This masterpiece features a White Dial with Applied Yellow Gold Hour Markers and Gorgeous Yellow Gold Lance-Style Hands with an 18kt Yellow Gold Fluted Bezel.
Original 18k Gold Riveted Oyster Bracelet with Fold-Over Deployant Clasp and Engraved "76" End Pieces, 36mm.
The Datejust is one the foundations upon which Rolex's success is built.
Solid and original 18k gold case measures 36mm diameter by 12mm thick. Original and clean fluted bezel. The screw down crown is operating perfectly. The crystal is acrylic and extremely clean. Interestingly, the reference 6605 was the first Datejust (and first Rolex watch, for that matter) to be delivered with the famous "Cyclops" lens built into the crystal, over the date display.
Self-Winding automatic Rolex Caliber 1065 movement with 25 jewels, adjusted to 5 positions and temperature, and is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer.
