The men's Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust ref, 1601 is one of the most iconic vintage watches in the brand's catalog. Its feature set exudes sophisticated dress watch design and is absolutely timeless. And thanks to impeccable construction that includes a waterproof screw-down crown and an intricate calibre 1570 Perpetual movement, the ref. 1601 continues to read true today. The example that you see here was produced sometime in the early 1970s and features a classic vintage design.
The Pie Pan dial features sloped edges and is topped with older-style indices and hands and creamy lume plots. The case is topped with a unique machine-turned bezel and features a thicker acrylic crystal over the dial. This preowned Rolex wears on a classic Jubilee bracelet and displays the Rolex logo at the 12-hour marker, making it instantly recognizable as a timepiece from the iconic brand.

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.
