-Description

The Datejust, one of Rolex's most iconic watches, was created in 1945.

It is widely known as a watch that anyone can recognize at a glance from its distinctive appearance.

The Datejust mechanism, which instantly changes the date at midnight, is considered one of Rolex's three greatest inventions, along with the Oyster case and the self-winding Perpetual mechanism, and the Datejust is the culmination of all of them.

This Ref.1601/8 is a very rare Datejust watch with an 18K yellow gold case.


At the time, this watch was sold with a leather strap.
The good thing is that it is not on a gold bracelet, so it is not so noticeable even though it is a solid gold watch.

The case is an austere gold case that has aged 60 years.
Although the case had been polished, it has not lost any weight and remains in very good condition.

The dial is the same color as the case, champagne gold.
The dial has standard bar indexes, but 6 and 9 o'clock are trapezoidal in shape with a slant.

The movement is the self-winding Cal.1560, a well-known Rolex masterpiece.

It is the base of all subsequent automatic movements and is highly regarded for its accuracy and durability.

It was used not only in the Datejust but also in the Explorer I (Ref.1016) and Submariner (Ref.5512).

The watch has been serviced at a Rolex service center and the case was not polished in this service.

The hands were replaced with brand new, luminova hands in the service.

However we replaced with the original alpha hands again.So it comes with luminova bar hands separately.


The watch is covered by a 2-year Rolex warranty.It comes with 2 service guarantee cards,2015 and 2023.
