Though my own hunt might’ve already ended, I still keep my eyes out for examples of note, and upon discovering one the other day, I knew it had a place in the column this week. As with any other vintage watch, condition and originality is the name of the game when looking to acquire a stone dial Datejust. With correct hands, a perfect dial, and a nice thick case, this example checks all boxes imaginable, and looks damn good doing it. Gold watches with black dials are a uniquely badass look, and without going into Daytona territory, this is the peak of badassery.
