What we love about it ?
Who doesn’t love a Datejust ? The perfect watch, as good at the opera as on the beach or in the office, a watch in production since almost 80 years now. Now there are Datejusts and Datejusts, you will see many worn and abused watches and that’s a good thing because watches are made to be worn but when it comes to collectability, all of these are no good. The only way to find rarity in such a widely produced watch is in its condition and our example here doesn’t disappoint. With its perfect unpolished case, its rare black dial and almost unworn 6251H bracelet we have managed to offer you here a true collectable Datejust. To enjoy from time to time or to be worn and abused like it should have been done… only a few decades after its production.
Plexiglas – 36mm diameter w/o crown – 20mm bracelet width.
