Rolex 1603 Bamboo bezel Datejust

I have finally found the Rolex Datejust ref 1603 with a very rare Bamboo Bezel. According  to Osvaldo Patrizzi ’s book, this model has been produced for 1 year only, exclusively for the Italian Market. The watch dial has aged gracefully with a nice light patina...









One down, 3 to go for 2018....
