A tropical dial has always a big charm and attraction on a watches enthusiast and collector, for this reason the Rolex Datejust reference 6605 here presented can’t go unnoticed. The caliber 1065 is fitted in a stainless steel tonneau-shaped case but, of course, is the dial the main actor of this watch: the dagger and baton applied numerals match perfectly with the dauphine hands with luminous material. The signature Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified seems to blend with the copper-colored of the dial took from the original gilt black. Open window with cyclope for the date at 3 o’clock and graduated stainless steel bezel. The watch is accompanied by the Original Rolex Warranty and Bulletin. For a similar watch please see lot 16 in this auction.
