Rolex Datejust Ovettone Steel Reference 6605

An early DJ with a big back…

We have always loved the steel oversized Oysters from the 1950s. Known by their Italian nickname ‘Ovettone’ (big egg), they are very collectible and are the precursors the sports watches.

This example is a Datejust with early white gold reeded bezel in lovely condition. The silver grained dial has applied yellow gold markers and a date aperture, which frames the roulette date wheel. The dial is signed ‘SWISS’ only. The watch has been fully checked by our watchmaker and will come on the pictured Bulang and Sons leather strap.
