Rolex Datejust Yellow Gold

Rolex Datejust Yellow Gold


Brand: Rolex
Typology: Vintage dresswatch
Year: 1977
The DJ has remained Rolex’s mainstay model since the brand introduced it in 1945. When it comes to popularity, the steel Oyster case and Jubilee bracelet combination is at the top of the pecking order for its sleek appearance and versatility.

Legendary status aside, the Luxo Time Firenze team gets excited when something unusual from the Datejust family comes along.
This example is just that. The full 18k yellow gold, no, this Datejust is not stainless steel or two-tone but solid gold, case is one thing but add in some great little Rolex details like a galaxy jeans dial?
The incredible hue, given by the purpleing of the dial paint, is something unique and unrepeatable and extremely fascinating.
The coloration changes according to the light conditions and lives a life of its own,
discovering blue matte or glossy purple tones.
The tritium plots are "exploded" that discolored the part adjacent to the lume, adding charm and character to the already special dial and the case back has been polished. Good general conditions

We paired this classed-up Datejust with a blue alligator strap that plays off of the slightly patinated yellow gold case oh so well.
