Rolex Datejust Ref. 1603 ‘Wideboy’

At first glance, you might mistake this for a typical Datejust. But this one has a couple of twists…

A pie-pan silver sunburst dial, engine-turned bezel, and the iconic oyster case are all familiar. But rather than the expected jubilee bracelet, we find the more sporty oyster bracelet on this specimen. A detail that completely transforms the look and feel of this classic.

Another atypical detail is the “Wideboy” layout. Have a look at the hands and indices. They are wider than normal, making for a little more rugged appearance.

If the Datejust tickles your fancy, but you need it to reflect your sporty nature, this could be the one for you!
