Rolex Datejust Ref 6105 - Ovettone with Black Gilt Dial

Sale price$0.00

Straight Facts

Hard to believe - but the Datejust has been around since 1945. It is far older than its bigger and attention hogging Submariner brethren. That being said, you never really come across the early Rolex Datejust as Rolex simply was not making as many watches in the 40s and 50s and they do today. That makes it a special day when we are able to find not only an early Datejust from the 50s, but a solid gold one. The present example featuring an absolutely stunning black gilt dial - which is as beautiful in person as it is rare to find!

You can only imagine the stories it has to tell! While all the hallmarks of classic Rolex are present (the fluted bezel, the big Rolex crown) - it’s done here on these early references in a far more refined way. The indices are ‘arrow-markers’, and the hands are beautifully elegant ‘dauphine” style - even the fluting on the bezel (we call this a ‘coin-edge’ bezel) just seems a little more subdued. Fully serviced by our expert watchmaker, this solid-gold Rolex Datejust is ready for its next 80 years of service on your wrist.

*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.

From Rolex & Patek Philippe, to Cartier & Audemars Piguet. As collectors first, we love the small details that separate the Submariner from Daytona and Calatrava from Royal Oak. This is why you'll find our curated assortment spans decades of generations of models and brands. We believe that watches don't just tell time, they tell history - and life is too short to wear a boring watch.
