-Description

Datejust is the Rolex's most famous automatic watch, was born 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 regarded as one of Rolex's three greatest inventions, together with the Oyster case and the automatic Perpetual mechanism, and the Datejust collection is the culmination of all these features.

Reference 1601 is a vintage model produced from the 1960s to the late 1970s, and its distinctive feature is the gold fluted bezel.

This example was manufactured around 1972.

The rounded plastic crystal and the dial with a dropped edge are details unique to vintage Datejust watches.

The dial is matte black. It is unusual for a dress model to feature silver lettering on a black dial, giving it a sporty feel.

The both dial and hands have luminous with tritium. There is no significant patina, and I feel that the condition is well kept, just like the dial.

The movement is an automatic caliber 1570. This movement has high precision and durability, having passed chronometer standards, and is also easy to maintain.

The bracelet is a Jubilee bracelet 6251H of the same era as the watch. Some of the links have slight dents and it has some droop due to age.

The bracelet is adjustable up to 18.5cm wrist.
