An especially clean example, with beautiful condition original “Oyster” dial and with particulary sharp and not over polished 14K WG fluted bezel.

The differences in the dial markers and hands over the several generations of Datejusts from the late 1950’s to the 1980’s are all subtle. But be assured, the devil is in the details, because the characteristics of the dial, the dial markers and the hands can make all the difference between a distinctive and remarkable example, and one that is more common, and less special. The current example 1963 example features the original era dial, and hands, not a later replacement, with the distinctive design charascteristics of the 1960’s era.
