About

The 1970 Cotton Bowl was played in Dallas, Texas on January 1, 1070. In the end, the Texas Longhorns triumphed over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 21- 17.

To commemorate this annual postseason game, Rolex created this custom dial, complete with the logo at the center. The dial has been fitted on a ref. #1603 18k white gold fluted bezel Datejust in stainless steel.

This is another great example of how the Swiss Rolex watch company has a reach which touches so many aspects of life in the US- a charming timepiece which is special and truly unique!

All of our vintage time pieces have been serviced and are accompanied by a one year warranty.
