Movement Rolex Chronometer Automatic Cal 1570
Case material:

Stainless Stee


Ref 1603


Here we have a beautiful example of a 36mm 1970 Datejust with a black dial, fluted steel bezel and chronometer grade automatic movement. 


This particular one has a black bezel, this is less common than the champagne dial versions, not rare but in recent years have become a little more collectable (as have black dials in general). The hands are original with some patination visible to the lume.


This has a screw down Oyster crown and case back. The case does not appear to have been polished heavily at all, only a light hand polish by us to clean and brighten up the steel.


We have also fitted a new old stock vintage 70s Rolex Datejust crystal so you have a scratch free genuine crystal.


We have fitted a vintage style suede grey leather strap with a steel buckle.


Water resistance is not guaranteed
