The Rolex Datejust was first introduced in 1945 and has been one of the world's most iconic and quintessential models ever since. This particular reference, the 1603, was introduced by Rolex in 1959 and was produced up until the late 1970s. The 1603 reference denotes a stainless steel Datejust with a milled steel bezel, as opposed to its counterpart, the 1601, which featured a fluted gold bezel.

This example dates to 1970, and is the rare and popular "Wide Boy" variant, named as such due to the wider than usual markers and hands on this particular dial configuration. The watch is in stainless steel with its milled bezel, and is twinned with its original folded-link Jubilee bracelet (service clasp) with 55 end links.

This watch is a great, well-preserved example particularly when considering being over 50 years old. The dial is in excellent condition, with a good case and crisp bezel, showing some light scratches appropriate with age. The bracelet is in very good condition and showing fairly minimal wear.
