Up for sale is a vintage Rolex Datejust Ref. 1601.
This particular two tone Datejust features an absolutely stunning sunburst slate grey sigma dial. The movement is a rare calibre 1560 with a butterfly rotor. The watch winds smoothly and is working as it should.
The watch was serviced by my watchmaker in October 2017 so it’s ready to wear.
Case diameter is 36mm (not including the crown). The case seems to have been polished but only very lightly. The crown is original and signed.
The after-market leather strap in the picture is included with the watch.
No box and papers.
The movement places the watch in the late 50’s - early 60’s. The dial seems to have been replaced as it is a sigma dial which started being used in the early 70’s. I have adjusted the price accordingly.
Price is USD 2,900 (OBRO) net to me through Paypal (friends and family). Regular Paypal is accepted but please add 4%.
The price includes worldwide shipping and insurance with EMS. I will also ship with DHL but will incur additional cost.
Please feel free to contact me for further inquiries.
