Rolex Datejust 1601, 1970 Vintage Watch
A lovely example of the Rolex Datejust from circa 1970. This reference 1601 Datejust features an attractive "no lume" pie pan dial.
As with almost everything vintage Rolex there is no such thing as black and white! Case in point, normally when you see T SWISS T on the dial you would expect to find tritium lume on the dial and/or hands. However, turns out with some examples Rolex never applied the lume to the already printed dials leading to what some now call "no lume" T dials.
Condition wise this watch is excellent for its age. The dial is largely clean and free from damage with just a scattering of smaller marks. The hands show ageing but are in overall decent shape. The case retains decent sharpness for its age and the calibre 1570 has received a full service.
This is a watch that will make you smile everyday with its perfect size and timeless design. Be quick though, as these never hang around long!
