Created in 1945, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust marked the company’s 40th anniversary. From its launch, this charismatic model stood out from Rolex’s product lineup thanks to a much larger case measuring 36 mm in diameter and a calendar displaying the date via a turning wheel in a window at 3 o'clock. This innovation was not only aesthetically pleasing, but much more convenient as it made it easier to read the time and date at a glance.
The present reference 6105, one of the first of the "Datejust" line, survived in incredible condition since 1951, is considered as one of the rarest references, also called Ovettone due to it’s pronounced back. The timepiece features a characteristic 18 karat gold fine fluted bezel, the creme dial with applied dagger indexes and the window for date with alternating red and black numerals and the luminous accents, all contributed to making this watch a powerful and elegant classic. The pink gold Rolex Jubilee bracelet, specially made for this model, is stamped for the 2nd quarter of 1951, corresponding to the year of manufacture.
Lastly, the Datejust works magically on the wrist and never goes out of style
