Description
Here is a nice, clean all original condition vintage Rolex Datejust reference 1625 also known as a “Thunderbird”. The Thunderbird moniker comes from the bezel, which is a bi-directional count-up timing device. On these vintage Datejusts, the Thunderbird bezel is rare. Of course, the condition of the bezel means everything. A bezel that has been eroded by wear and/or polishing detracts from both the look and value of the watch. The bezel on this watch is in mit original condition; the fine engraving and numerals in relief are perfectly crisp and undiminished.

Unpolished solid 18k gold case on this watch is in mint condition with original case lines and sharp edges. The screw down crown is operating fine. Plastic crystal is clean. Serial number 2793XXX dates the watch to 1970.

The champagne pie-pan dial is original and untouched. Applied golden hour markers with black inlays and original, intact adjacent luminous dots. Original hands. Date at 3 o’clock. The dial has a radial brush finish.

Original automatic winding Rolex Caliber 1570 with 26 jewels and adjusted to temperature and in 5 positions. This movement is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer and is in immaculate condition.

Strap is unworn brown Patek Philippe crocodile with Rolex buckle.

This vintage Rolex Datejust Thunderbird is in outstanding original condition.
