The vintage Rolex 1601 Datejust that is presented here today was produced sometime in the 1970s and is in excellent condition. This Datejust boasts a configuration that is slightly more rare via a champagne dial that is topped with bold Roman hour markers in black. The date display, of course, is ever-present at the 3-hour marker and the Rolex logo is displayed at the 12-hour marker. As an older preowned Rolex, the ref. 1601 also boasts an acrylic crystal over the dial and runs on an older-generation calibre 1570 perpetual movement with 19,800 bph and a Breguet hairspring. The movement is tucked safely within an Oyster case that initially boasted waterproofness of up to 330 feet for many more years of reliable readings.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
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.
