I recently came across this datejust and picked it up after seeing it still appeared to be all original. With the thin case and comfortable two tone stretch bracelet, this piece makes a nice change from the sport watches.

Here is mine from 1965, same type of dial.
No underline, but they have printed the T's from T swiss T later on the dial. (it was born as a SWISS only dial)

Bas, those added T's make your piece unique for sure. Roel, you had a great piece and I'm sure you miss it, I've always liked the small datejust font like your watch had. Jeff, another underline! Very nice!

Thanks everyone for sharing, I just love to see these old datejusts

Those hands, the hour markers and the two tone bracelet. You are right it makes a nice change from the sport watches. Very good looking watch.

...it's a 6605, right?
Can't go wrong with either one and as always--great taste, Billy!
All the best,
Tom
