An attractive example of the endlessly classic Rolex Datejust. This particular example is a Datejust reference 1601 from circa 1973, powered by the Calibre 1670 automatic movement which sits inside its elegant 36mm case. 

Originally launched in 1945 to mark the 40th anniversary of Wilsdorf & Davis (that would later become Rolex), the Datejust is arguably the most timeless and elegant model that Rolex has (and still does) produce.

The example we have here features a mint condition, professionally restored black dial, case in excellent condition and a fully serviced movement. The watch is currently fitted to a tan leather bracelet but we can switch it to a number of alternatives should you wish.

All in all a beautiful and timeless watch in stunning condition.
