A stunning example of the Rolex Datejust 1601 from circa 1969. This example features a pie pan dial in excellent condition that makes the Datejust reference 1601 so loved by collectors. It is also fitted with the iconic Jubilee bracelet that'll fit up to approximately 16cm wrists.

The Rolex Datejust, in its vintage form, is our favourite Rolex model. Although that may seem controversial the Datejust, we love the Datejust (at least in its vintage form) for being possibly the only Rolex that offers subtle (not in your face) elegance.

It seems we're not the only ones too with prices of vintage Rolex Datejusts up over 25% in the past year alone. We can't see this trend changing anytime soon either so now is the perfect time to secure one of these truly timeless watches before they become out of reach for all but the luckiest.
