Up for grabs is a Rolex DateJust
Reference 6305/1 is executed in 14kt gold, 36mm case, automatic “big bubbleback”
109,XXX serial number with chronometer certificate dated in 1954.
Excellent vintage condition case with thick and even lugs. There is patina on caseback and under/between lugs from lack of touching it for many years. Very clear and crisp numbers indicate the watch hasn’t been worn on bracelet.
Dial is original, very attractive black gilt with orange patina on plots and hands. Still very radioactive as checked by Geiger counter. There is matting/radium burn on lacquer from age and radium, but no damage of any kind man-made. No relume, no scratches, no chipping, no refinish. Original hands.
Caseback is original, stamped 6305-1 and 14kt hallmarks inside.
The movement number matches the Rolex chronometer certificate
The watch comes with Rolex beveled box, a rare leather sleeve for COCS cert, the Cert itself and Rolex guarantee dated in 1956 at time of purchase as new with matching serial number to the case of the watch.
