1603 ‘Wide Boy Sigma’
We have seen Wide Boy dials before, also Sigma ones, and even the rare Taupe dials. But the level of cleanliness and high quality displayed by the magnificent dial on this 1603 Datejust from 1975, including the combination of a brown/grey Wide Boy Sigma dial with perfect patinated Tritium, is something we’ve never seen before – in our humble opinion, all the above makes this 1603 ‘Wide Boy Sigma’ an absolutely unique vintage Rolex Datejust.
That already marvelous dial is adorned with 18k white gold ‘Wide Boy’ indices and hands, nicknamed this way due to the wider style of design of the aforementioned parts. The dial itself features a stunning Sunburst finish with beautiful vanilla colored Tritium at the end of the indices and inside the original hands. This 1603 is worn on its 62510H solid Jubilee bracelet and remains in a very good condition with an Oyster folding clasp which shows a sharp and clean looking Rolex coronet. The stainless steel, Engine Turned bezel remains damage free, sharp and also in a strong condition. Furthermore, the case shows thick and equally shaped lugs, and of course the date-wheel is still the original one featuring the collectible ‘open 6 and 9’ numerals. In short; one hell of a Datejust with a dial made of vintage Rolex dreams! The warm and very attractive brown and grey tones inside the watch are interspersed by taupe ones, all depending on the angle you’re viewing the dial from – It truly is nothing short of stunning, therefor we’d like to invite you to come and visit us so you can take a look at this vintage Rolex with your own two eyes, photo’s simply don’t do justice to this staggering and rare Rolex Datejust. You will not be disappointed.
