-Description

Datejust is one of the Rolex's most iconic watches.

It was reveald in 1945.

It is widely known as a watch that is instantly recognisable from its distinctive appearance.

This Ref.1601/8 is a very rare piece as Datejust with 18K yellow gold case from late 1960s.

Like the Day-Date, it was originally sold with 18K gold president bracelet.

This watch has a leather strap only, but comes with a genuine Rolex YG buckle.

The dial is a champagne gold linen dial.
In japan, it is called "silk dial".

The textures in the vertical and horizontal lines give it just the right amount of shimmer and shine, creating a stylish atmosphere.

The movement is the automatic Cal.1570, a well-known Rolex masterpiece.

It was the basis for all subsequent automatic movements and is highly regarded for its precision and durability.

It was used not only in the Datejust, but also in the Explorer I (Ref.1016) and Submariner (Ref.1680).

Fully serviced by our watchmaker.
