Rolex 6105 Ovettone 18K

Ultra classy and stylish, this is one of the first Rolexes with date called ‘Ovettone’ which later became the Datejust. This example has one of the best and cleanest original dials I’ve ever seen. Stunning patina on the luminous dots, lovely cream patina and clear printing (notice the ‘square’ print typical for this model). The date is all in red which contrasts extremely well with the dial and gold case. Reference is 6105 made in 18K yellow gold with bevelled bezel. Serial is 84xxxxx which brings it to around 1952. The large gold screw-back case measures a large 36mm excl. crown and takes a 20mm band. Movement is Rolex bubble automatic, working perfectly. Attached is an original Rolex brown croco band + aftermarket Rolex goldfilled buckle. Absolute head-turner which are rapidly going up in price.
