An early, rare, and fine condition Rolex “Ovetone” Datejust model ref 6305 serial # 971,xxx circa 1954 with original  dial with red printed “Datejust” and red print date wheel. Featuring 36mm diameter 18K yellow gold case with finely milled bezel, and acrylic dome crystal without magnifying cyclops. Original matte silver,  patinated dial with distinctive gold raised triangular indexes, original and untouched cream radium dots, tapered dauphine hands, with gilt date frame, and signed SWISS. Powered by self winding chronometer rated calibre 745 self winding movement with sweep seconds and date, and with original early + logo screw down crown.

This fine example is further distinguished by a historically interesting presentation engraving on case back dated 1954, indicating the watch was a 30 year presentation gift to an executive associated with the Arabian American Oil Company. Recently meticulously serviced by our most veteran watchmaker and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Offered on your choice of fine leather or exotic skin strap.

NOTE: As shown in the photos, the original dial shows patina and aging. The dial is entirely original and there has been no cleaning, or other attempts to improve the condition of the original dial. A rare and desirable example with correct replacement non cyclops crystal

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
