The Datejust first exploded onto the market 72 years ago in the form of large Bubbleback watches. The Datejust was technologically innovative due to the instant date change that clicked over just on midnight. Though a clever spring mechanism, the date change occurred in an instant. Then, after nearly a decade of production, the Cyclops was introduced; Rolex's name for the date bubble or date magnifier. The Cyclops crystal was different to previous glasses due to the introduction of Rolex's new three-piece Oyster case design. The 6305 was one of the first new and improved Datejusts and it has now become one of the most coveted references of Rolex's most prodigious watch line.

This watch is very wearable. The case is a classic, and still relevant today, 36mm but the early movement meant that the case was much deeper than modern DJs. This depth means the watch sits higher on the wrist; a lifted presence that collectors love.

Aesthetic Condition*:

  • Light signs of use on the case and bracelet. Possibly refinished dial, date wheel is misaligned. Very attractive vintage presentation on your wrist. Sold head only, we will include an aftermarket strap
