From the Oyster case to the handsome champagne linen "Pie Pan" dial, everything about this Datejust ref. 1601 exudes sophisticated vintage style. Produced in the 1970's, the ref. 1601 brings with it a calibre 1570 perpetual movement with a 48-hour power reserve and 19,800 bph. The case is crafted from resilient stainless steel and features a beautifully aged 14 karat yellow gold fluted bezel and a thicker acrylic crystal. The Pie Pan dial is a popular variation among vintage Rolex watches and features a "step" at the edge of the dial as well as yellow gold stick hour markers and central sweeping hands. This secondhand Rolex is presented on a brown Italian leather strap.

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.
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.
