The rarest variations ever produced in the classic series of the Datejust model, these early lacquered dials are very prone to change their hue to a desirable brown very different from conventional dials, they have a unique shine and mirror finish. These dials fall into the serial number range 1xxxxx to 1.5xxxxx and were produced for a very short period of time between 1964 and 1967.

The present watch is a true rarity, the earliest gilt Datejust we have seen with a serial number in the 998xxx range, additionally the dial has arrow gold markers which go really well with the brown hue and golden gilt text.
