This is an exceedingly rare Rolex Datejust reference 6305/1, introduced in 1954, nearly a decade after the Datejust's initial release by Rolex. Initially, the Datejust was a niche and formal model, exclusively available in 18k gold or two-tone variations. The introduction of the ref. 6305 Datejust in 1954 marked a pivotal moment. It introduced a stainless steel metal option, laying the foundation for the Datejust's evolution into the iconic all-purpose timepiece we recognize today.

This 1954 ref. 6305 is a remarkably well-preserved specimen and desirable configuration with the red text and no lume dial. The 36mm stainless steel case boasts a finely stamped 18k white gold coin-edge bezel, distinct from the fluted bezels that would come in later years. The white dial is in impeccable condition, a noteworthy feat for a nearly 70-year-old timepiece. The dial showcases elegant indices and dauphine hands. Consistent with the era, the date disc displays a roulette-style design with alternating red and black numerals against a white background, visible through a stylish metal aperture. This 6305 holds great significance as it hails from the inaugural year of production for the stainless steel Datejust, one of the most beloved watches globally. Within this iconic lineup, this specific specimen unquestionably stands out as an exceptionally well-preserved collector's item.
