This used Rolex watch is in very good condition with only few light surface scratches as well as some slight stretch to the bracelet consistent with age. Dial has a very small scratch near 9 and 11 o'clock and hands have aged slightly.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date is a variation of the iconic Datejust that offers a smaller 34mm case, a Perpetual movement with automatic winding, and a jump date on the dial. The ref. 1601 that is presented here today is a vintage example of the line that brings with it a very attractive price tag of under $4k. Its feature set includes a stunning stainless steel finish, a machine-turned bezel, and a matching silver Pie Pan dial adorned with silver indices and hands. This example wears on a classic five-link Jubilee bracelet and is a popular choice among preowned Rolex collectors of all budgets.

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.
