The 1601 Rolex is a handsome two-tone edition of the vintage Datejust. The example that is listed for sale today was produced sometime in the late 1960s and is in excellent used Rolex condition. It features a traditional 36mm Oyster case and a Rolex logo on the dial, making it instantly recognizable as a Rolex dress watch. It also sports the Datejust's signature jump date mechanism on the dial, adding even further to its influence as a bold status watch without commanding a top-tier price. As a vintage Rolex, the ref. 1601 also features a classic "Pie Pan" dial, Tritium lume, and a calibre 1570 automatic movement.

I could not have asked for better service than what I received. I had been searching for a specific vintage watch for quite some time and when I finally found it, Sarah and Alex were extremest helpful in making my purchase a seamless experience.
Super fast shipping. Watch was just as described. Super happy with my first Rolex from Bob’s!
Bobs watches hooked me up! Best experience ever! My transaction wasn’t going through, I gave them a call and they helped me through it! Costumer service itself deserves a 10+! Their inventory of watches is awesome! I got my first dream watch thanks to them! The watch shipped no longer than 24 hours! I’ll definitely keep making business with them for my 2nd Rolex!
Quick , item as described, excellent communication, easy transaction. Had the item verified by my jeweler and he was impressed by the quality and condition the vintage Rolex was in!!!!!
Somehow, this watch looks even better than it did in the photos. Great condition. My first Rolex! Thank you to everyone at Bob's Watches.
I really enjoyed the east of which Bob's Watches made the buying experience. I have been looking for this particular Rolex for some time. The moment I saw that they had what I was looking for, I purchased it, and with the wire transfer, it was at my door the next morning.
The whole process was seamless and as promised. The watch was in perfect condition and the presentation and packaging was outstanding. The Affirm process was seamless as well. I would definitely recommend Bob's Watches and do business with them again.
Stunning good looks. The slate dial is a bit more understated than the silver, gold, or black datejust dials, which I feel is important. The dial color pairs well with the bracelet or any brown or black leather straps.
Serial Number 2801936 is the one that I own. It is a complete set with box and papers. Unlike the version, shown in the photo, I have no luminescent hands. Great timepiece and has increased in value from the $255 Price Tag from June 28,1972. P.S. Not For Sale.
