Steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Chronometer Ref. 1603 vintage wristwatch, circa 1974

A fine stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with date and hack feature

The reference 1603 is a large sized vintage Oyster with a case diameter of 36mm (excluding the winding crown). A bold and imposing model, the present watch is an excellent example of the reference with a superb dial (face) that is in outstanding condition. The dial has a chamfered outer minute/seconds track which creates a two-tone appearance and gives a greater sense of depth to the surface. The surface of the dial itself has a wonderful, silvery-grey, satin sheen and the broad baton numerals have faceted edges which, together with the outer chamfered minute track, enhance the play of light across the whole surface. The Rolex Oyster case, with screw-down crown and case back, has a finely milled and reeded bezel. The automatically wound chronometer rated movement is a Rolex calibre 1570 with 26 jewels. Also incorporating a hack feature, when the crown is pulled out to set the time, the seconds hand is stopped, thereby allowing easy synchronisation to a time signal.
