The Satin White - Sometimes all you need is a Datejust. This beautiful Vintage Datejust is in great condition showing little wear from age. It has a white satin dial showing a almost matte surface and reflecting beautifully in different lightings.The nicely aged Tritium dots are nice accents on the plain almost monochrome look of the watch. It is fitted to a tight rolled Jubilee bracelet to have that full vintage feel on. Vintage Datejusts are great, they wear nicely and can be on your wrist every day.
|Case||Very nice vintage condition case with a crisp engine turned bezel. The lugs remain straight and even with clear numbers|
|Bracelet / Strap||Excellent earlier rolled Jubilee bracelet with later clasp. The bracelet is tight and does not show much wear from age.|
|Dial||Excellent satin white dial with baton indexes. The lumes are puffy and fully intact, have aged to a light brown color. The hands show some oxidation but still bear the original luminous|
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.
