There's so much to love about this early 60s Datejust reference 1601! This two-tone example is especially well preserved and delivers everything you want from an early dress watch, from the excellent coin-edged bezel, desirable lume patina to the sought after dauphine style hands. This is a perfect dress piece that sets itself apart from the crowd as an understated statement of individuality!
