A stunning example of the Rolex Datejust 1603 with a rare linen dial hailing from circa 1974.

The vintage Datejust is one of our favourite vintage dress watches, especially when fitted with a linen dial as with this example. At 36mm it offers (in our humble opinion) the perfect size for a vintage dress watch. When paired with its clean dial design and infinitely classy Jubilee bracelet, it becomes something most Rolex's could only dream of; understated! 

This particular example features a linen dial in near mint condition, a case that remains sharp and free from major damage and a jubilee reference 6251 H bracelet fitting wrists between 6.5-7.5 inches depending on adjustment on the clasp.

Finally, the Calibre 1570 automatic movement has received a full service and is in good running order.

Here we have an excellent example of a highly desirable vintage Rolex dress watch with the added interest of the linen dial. We love the Rolex Datejust 1603, and this watch is no exception!

Condition Report

Condition Report: Presented in good vintage condition. The linen dial remains in excellent condition. The lume plots have been refreshed at some point in the past and a few of them have fallen away. The hands remain in fair order and were likely also re-lumed at the same time as the dial. The case is in good shape for its age with only minor light scratches. The jubilee reference 6251 H bracelet, shows signs of stretching but is still very usable and will fit wrists between 6.5-7.5 inches depending on adjustment on the clasp.
