This is one of the rarest and most desirable Datejusts and we are delighted to be offering it for sale! Honeycomb dials are rare and highly sought after by collectors and this one is in beautiful and all-original condition. The dial has the metal date aperture window, which nicely frames the original roulette date wheel. The watch dates to 1955 and the case is in solid condition with the bezel having a nicely aged appearance. The watch has a cool look due to the fact that it has a Cyclops-free tropic crystal installed. The non –lume dial is in fantastic condition! The hands still glow greenish. The crown has been repaced to a later one in its 70 years of history. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker and will come on a strap of your choice from our webshop*.
THE 'BIG EGG'
The Rolex Big Bubbleback watches are known by their Italian nickname ‘Ovettone’ (big egg) due to the exceptional depth of case. This was necessary due to the auto-wind rotor in the 1950s Oyster Perpetual watches – the caseback is deep and rounded.
The king of Datejusts for many collectors is the honeycomb dial 6305. Sometimes also referred to as guilloche or waffle, we love these watches and they are sought after by collectors across all areas including sports watches and dress watches. Whether you want to rock it on a leather straps, nylon nato or a cool straight endlink beads-of-rice bracelet, it’s a versatile watch that has a real presence on the wrist.
