Product Detail

Of all the watches that I collect and sell, this is perhaps the only firm that needs little introduction…having built its business over the last century on high quality, innovation and style. The Rolex Watch Co. of Switzerland, founded by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother in law Alfred Davis, would first establish his business in England (1908) before settling in Switzerland. By 1919, Wilsdorf had established the Manufacture des Montres Rolex, at a time when the movements were crafted in Bienne and the watches were hand-finished in Geneva. On average, more than 200 technicians are involved in producing a single Rolex wristwatch, quite remarkable

I only sell genuine, authentic, watches in "Good" to "Pristine" condition

If one were to design the perfect everyday sporty or dress watch with an attribute like a strong presence on the wrist, they would design the Rolex Datejust. Even at 36mm the Datejust wears nicely on the wrist given its beefy oyster case and longer lugs. Every vintage collection, even a sport watch collection, has at least one Datejust. The present example of this must-have reference is in excellent condition

First introduced in 1945 to commemorate the company's 40th anniversary, the Datejust is one of Rolex's oldest collections of timepieces that still remain in production today. While a date display has become completely standard on most contemporary timepieces, the Rolex Datejust was the world's very first self-winding wristwatch to feature a date window that would automatically change over at midnight

A true classic, the Rolex Datejust has been regarded as the best everyday watch of all time, and its timeless style has endured for decades. This one has a very cool rarity: a much sought after pie pan dial, and to find one in this condition is not easy

This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this.  If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, or possibly a dated inscription on the case back, then this may be right for you. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
