Box, original guaranteed paper and original receipt from 1960. Also includes a letter from Rolex stated the watch is too old to service. The movement was recently serviced and is winding smooth and keeping good time.
Notes: For your consideration is a rare example of an early Datejust reference 6605. This example has the optional white gold fluted bezel that makes it unique over other 6605's. White dial while worn looks great with the original roulette date wheel. The best part of this watch is the provenance. The watch was originally purchased by a military Captain in Germany in 1960 at an Air Forces Exchange base. The original receipt is well preserved and shows all the details including the Captain's name. Also included with the box is the original guaranteed handwritten card showing the matching serial number. The watch was sent to Rolex and received a statement saying that due to the age of the watch they no longer had parts to service the watch. A watch with unique military ownership with all its goodies to show ready to be civilian worn.
