1973 Unpolished Rolex Datejust 1603 "Taupe" Sigma Dial Collectors Set
This is one crazy Rolex Datejust 1603 with rare "taupe" sigma sunburst dial in 100% original, untouched condition from ca. 1973. It comes directly from the daughter of the original owner with the box and all the paperwork he received when buying the watch for 1.125 DM (German mark) back in the mid 1970s. In addition the daughter wrote us a personal dedication as well. It's without a doubt a collectors dream: the unpolished condition, the outstanding dial and last but not least the fullset, coming along with this watch - what else can you ask for?!
