Look closely at the bottom of the dial – see what it says? O SWISS O. Except, it doesn't. Those are actually Greek “Sigmas” that sandwich the Swiss signature. Now, that might seem like a small and insignificant detail but in the world of vintage Rolex, there is no such thing as small or insignificant. In fact, the smaller and rarer, the better. Backing up, the Rolex reference 1603 is my favorite vintage Rolex watch, there's no question. Not only is it incredibly versatile, equally as suitable from the bar to the boardroom, but its quality of construction and legendary are known across the globe. This Sigma dial Datejust is a dream – manufactured in the early 1970's, the Rolex world still debates as to whether the sigma signatures were more of a tool of identification or marketing ploy but either way, they're always on our minds. Finding Datejusts like this is a hunt, but it's my favorite hobby -it is one of my favorite watches and I know it’ll never disappoint.
