Not much has changed in terms of appearance since the Datejust watch was introduced in 1945. Its classic and timeless style can still be seen in the reference 1601 that is offered here today. Its 36mm stainless steel Oyster case features an impressive design with a waterproof screw-down crown and sleek, narrow case lugs. The case is framed with an elegant yellow gold fluted bezel, the perfect compliment to the handsome black dial that is topped with yellow gold index hour markers and sweeping hands topped with lume. The Datejust's famous date aperture is prominently displayed at the 3 hour marker along with a magnifying Cyclops lens. This reference is paired with a coordinating black leather strap, creating a striking design.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certifed 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.
