If you're in the market for an introductory vintage Rolex, the two-tone Datejust ref. 1601 that is presented here today is an excellent option to consider. This example of the iconic Datejust features a stunning steel and gold finish as well as a matching champagne Pie Pan dial with Tritium plots, a five-piece link Jubilee bracelet with a Fliplock clasp, and a standard 36mm case size. A self-winding movement ticks away inside the case and features a jump date mechanism, which is prominently displayed at the 3-hour marker. This example of the Datejust was produced in the mid-1970s and is in excellent secondhand condition for a watch of its age. The ref. 1601 is a stunning addition to any watch box and can be yours today for under $4k.

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.
Product was as advertised.
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.
