Featuring an excellent condition 36mm 18k yellow gold case, with thick lugs and sapphire crystal and fluted bezel.Powered by calibre 3055 “single” quick set movement with day of the week and quick set date.

This beautiful watch was recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. We don’t expect this one to be around for very long!

NOTE: Onyx is a deep black natural stone. Rolex used stone dials on some Day Date, and Datejust models during this era which are highly sought after. Original Rolex factory Onyx dial models of this era have reportedly brought $25,000-$30,000 attesting to their rarity and value. The Onyx stone dial in this model is a particularly appealing one with an almost bottomless appearance. We are often asked to source original Onyx dial models, which are very elusive, so we are proud to be able to offer this next best thing!
