Vintage Rolex Datejust 1603 original USA made bracelet $3000.00 CAD

e10143-rolex-datejust-1603-usa-bracelet-001

Rolex first released the Datejust in 1945 to commemorate the company’s 40th anniversary. The original Datejust, only available in 18 karat gold, was a striking timepiece and was the first watch able to display the date as well as the time. The original Datejust also had a very unique bracelet and as it was the company’s 40th anniversary it was fittingly called the Jubilee bracelet. The original solid gold bracelets of 1945 were of a similar design to the current bracelet with its classic 5 link design. It wasn’t until decades later that a steel option was released. Our Datejust is an all steel model 1603 whose serial number dates it to 1974. The 1603 is on a steel Jubilee bracelet with clasp stamped “Stainless Steeel Rolex U.S.A.” meaning this example was made in the states sometime in the 1970s.e10143-rolex-datejust-1603-usa-bracelet-002 We’ve mentioned before the strength and importance of the caliber 1570 movement housed in the stainless steel case and of course its legendary reliability will not disappoint. The desirable silver tritium dial is complimented by the polished and brushed stainless steel case.  Who doesn’t love an engine turned bezel opposed to the more common bezel of the fluted variety.e10143-rolex-datejust-1603-usa-bracelet-003  This watch of course comes with a one year Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers warranty and is estate priced at $3000.00 CAD.  Stock #e10143.

18 karat oval cable link bracelet 9.7 grams 7 inch $770.00 CAD.

e10108-18-karat-oval-cable-link-bracelet-001

Cable link bracelets are inherently strong enough to achieve that coveted wear it and forget about it quality. The triangular profile links in this example are made from solid 1.2mm diameter wire, allowing it to be sturdy without too much bulk. The high polished, warm 9.7 grams of 18 karat gold are well suited for the layered look that’s been so popular the last couple of years. Measuring the ladies length of 7 inches long it should fit the average feminine wrist. Secured by a strong lobster clasp the bracelet will look lovely worn next to a watch, bangle, or all on its own. Estate price $770.00 CAD. Stock #e10108.e10108-18-karat-oval-cable-link-bracelet-002

Super heavy & wide 14kt. gold bracelet 153.4gr. 8.5″ $7350.00 CAD.

In terms of sheer overwhelming scale, we’ve never had a bracelet like this one. Even if you’re  viewing this on a tiny little smart phone screen you should be able to tell this is no ordinary curb link bracelet. Over 20mm wide and 6mm thick, with a weight of 153.4 grams there are not many around that will compare with this. The bracelet was a commissioned piece the former owner had made many years ago when gold was much less costly. It truly is a one of a kind item. We have tried to find super heavy and wide bracelets before; they’re impossible to locate as production items. The width of most production bracelets stops at about 15mm wide, this monster is a full 33% wider. The links are so generously proportioned it only takes 14 to make up the entire 8.5 inches of overall length. There are plenty of guys out there who like massive oversized watches for their left arm; how about this to balance the look? This 14 karat yellow gold creation is in perfect condition as the previous owner only wore it on select occasions. The alternating highly polished and pebbled finish links show like new without any signs of joint wear. The bracelet is secured by an open link and fold over side safety clasp that seamlessly integrate into an endless pattern. It’s fully conceivable that the gold value alone the bracelet contains could easily exceed our estate price if the value of gold continues to climb. With the price of gold at $1620.00 per ounce Canadian we have the bracelet estate priced at $7350.00 (for now). Recent insurance appraisal comes included. Stock number #e10340.
