A stunning classic! This specific 1969 DateJust Ref. 6605 in 18k yellow gold is one of the nicest examples of the reference we have ever seen. The case retains the original Rolex factory bursting as does the base back. The solid 18k bracelet is also in stunning condition and shows very minimal stretch. The Rolex coronet on the buckle is also sharp and as it would have come from the factory in 1959 which is rare for 18k YG watches of this era. The dial is flawless and the lume plots have achieved a wonderful deep creamy patina.
We love the early Rolex DateJust for its simplicity and its classic sophistication. This executive execution of the early reference is downright stunning and would make a great addition to a growing collection or for the gentlemen that is looking for a touch of classic, elegant, and executive exclusivity.
