Anna reviewed the tastes watch to hit the watch shop – a Rolex 1601 in pink gold and stainless steel (two-tone). Here are some of the highlights.
“Introduced in 1945, the Datejust has remained a cornerstone of the Rolex collection since and it’s easy to see why. It’s substantial without ever overwhelming, it’s versatile and ever reliable and just slightly more approachable than some of its brothers and sisters.
Not only are early 60’s Datejusts rare in and of themselves but this example in pink is a unicorn.
Rolex officially introduced tritium lume into the Rolex artillery in 1964, and this late 1963 model snuck in with that first batch, making it one of Rolex’s first tritium models.
Its a two tone, but not yellow. It’s pink gold and stainless steel. The beautiful pink bezel matches its crown and dial, Pink rolex coronet, alpha hands, and all. Not only is pink gold widely considered a more approachable and beautiful metal than its more gaudy yellow sibling, but it is unquestionably rarer.
And from the iconic bright green, gold-trimmed box, all the way down to the Rolex cleaning cloth, each little accompaniment adds that extra dose of history and character. This Datejust comes with its original strap, hang tag and buckle – pretty cool, huh?
This beautiful, rare, Rolex Datejust has been worn, and still preserved, and maintains the highest standards of reliability, durability, and quality that it was originally designed to uphold.”
