1967 Stainless Steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust with Box & Papers (VW694)
Presented in amazing condition is this extremely rare 1967 stainless steel vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Chronometer. This vintage Rolex has a very rare sunburst brown ‘Root Beer’ dial which was a seldom produced colour at the time with very few in existence today. This Datejust also retains its original folded link Jubilee bracelet complete with ‘Big Crown’ clasp, original coffin box and Rolex Guarantee card. This rare Datejust was completely rebuilt by Rolex last September with the movement being in mint fully overhauled condition (2 year Rolex Guarantee).
The genuine top quality stainless steel vintage Rolex ref: 1603 case is in close to mint condition. The case measures 36mm in diameter excluding the signed screw down Rolex winding crown. The screw in case back is signed ‘MONTRES ROLEX SA GENEVA SWITZERLAND STAINLESS STEEL 1603 111.67’, the serial number 171xxxx and case back both date this Rolex to 1967. The screw down Rolex crown functions properly. The mint case has the correct combination of brushed satin lug shoulders and highly polished sides. The sunburst ‘Root Beer’ dial is framed with a stainless steel machined & fluted bezel which contrasts beautifully with the brushed satin lugs and end pieces.
The rare and original first generation 20mm stainless steel Rolex Jubilee folded link bracelet is in excellent condition and is fully signed. The bracelet is complete with 22 links, this will fit a 21cm wrist or can be adjusted down at the clasp. This Rolex bracelet has the correct highly polished center sections and contrasting brushed satin finish to the outer links.
The original and extremely rare sunburst brown dial is in mint condition and looks superb in natural light, these dials acquired the nickname ‘Root Beer’ and are normally seen on the GMT models and very rarely on the Datejust types. The dial has very attractive large raised gold hour markers with polished centre detail making them really stand out from the dial, the gold hands and seconds sweep contrast beautifully with the sunburst dial. The dial is signed ‘ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL DATEJUST SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED SWISS’ with the raised gold Rolex crown logo in the twelve position.
The high grade automatic 26 Jewel Swiss made Rolex caliber 1570 chronometer movement is in mint rebuilt condition and is keeping excellent time over a 36hr period, this movement has been well cared for over the years and has had a recent complete overhaul by Rolex and still under guarantee. The movement is signed ‘MONTRES ROLEX SA GENEVA SWISS TWENTY SIX 26 JEWELS ADJUSTED 5 POSITIONS AND TEMPERATURE 1570’.
This Rolex Datejust also comes complete with its original coffin box and Rolex Guarantee card with matching serial/reference numbers.
This Rolex is supplied with a Vintage Winders Authentication Certificate, a Vintage Winders receipt/warranty document and instructions for care and use supplied in a Vintage Winders glossy folder.
