Rolex Early Datejust ref 6305-1 Red Lettering circa 1955


An early, rare, and fine condition Rolex Datejust model ref 6305-1 serial # 110,xxx circa 1955 with original weathered dial with red printed “Datejust” red printed depth rating, and alternating red and black “roulette wheel” date disk. Featuring 36mm diameter case with 14K white gold fine milled bezel, acrylic dome crystal without magnifying cyclops, and original matte silver dial with pronounced triangular indexes, patinad radium dots, tapered dauphine hands, and signed SWISS. Powered by self winding chronometer rated calibre 745 self winding movement with sweep seconds and date. Recently meticulously serviced by our most veteran watchmaker and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation. Offered on your choice of fine leather or exotic skin strap.

NOTE: This is quite a remarkable example, a precursor to the ref 1601 model with 1570 movement, as well as precursor to the late 1950’s 6605 Datejust with 1030 movement. An extremely desirable example with original red printed Datejust and depth rating and roulette date wheel. (Additional photos showing the red even number dates to be added shortly)
