The Grey Sigma
Datejusts come in an array of dial colors and versions. The present watch has one of the nicest 'basic' colors, the slate grey. The stainless steel & white gold Datejust blends nicely with the grey dial to a pretty monochrome look but with a touch, the color is really elegant. This watch has seen some wrist time and we believe it was a daily companion of the previous owner. The overall condition of the watch is what we would call raw and genuine brings lots of character. Last but not least this watch is presented with the original punched, dated and stamped Warranty Certificate from Taiwan. This is one great example as a first Rolex which you'll never forget.

Released in 1945 to celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary, the Datejust was the first automatic chronometer wristwatch to indicate the date through a window on the dial. The Datejust is characterized by its date window under the ‘cyclops’ window. Iconic vintage Datejusts were made in 36mm case diameter, with a range of steel and precious metal versions.
