Detailed explanation of ratings
The Rolex Datejust is one of the most quintessential yet understated Rolex models produced
Originally launched in 1945, it has remained a timeless classic and is renowned for its quality and functionality.
Rare original brown sunburst “bronze” dial with gold batons & hands. These dials are referred to as “pie pan” dials due to the sloping edge of the dial. This detail is why the four digit Datejust references are much admired amongst collectors. The dial is signed “T Swiss T” referring to the original tritium luminous used on the dial. The dial has not been touched and remains in excellent original condition.
The reference 1601 in 18k solid yellow gold with fluted bezel. The 2.2 million serial number in-between the lugs denotes the year of production to 1969. It features a plexiglass crystal with a “Cyclops” magnifying the date display and a gold Rolex Oyster Twinlock screw down crown. The case has been professionally polished by our watchmakers giving the watch a stunning aesthetic. The yellow gold bezel has been sympathetically cleaned by hand so that it retains the original fluted edges. This is one of the reasons why our watches are presented in the highest quality in terms of condition.
This watch comes with a quality JPM leather strap (made in Italy) and fitted with a genuine gold plated Rolex pin buckle. Different leather straps can be ordered on request.
