Rolex 1601 “Wide Boy”

SOLD


SOLD

I am a Datejust fanatic, and I don’t take that word lightly. It was my first watch and it will forever represent simplicity, quality and legacy. Think I’m being vague? Simplicity: uncluttered dials complicated by only a small date beside the 3. Quality: Inside the reference 1601 is the 1575 caliber, a beauty in function. Legacy? The first gold Rolex worn on an American president WAS NOT the Day-Date, ladies and gentlemen, it was the Datejust and it was Eisenhower’s. This particularly example is, to me, a dream. The unpolished case and stunning “wide boy” dial configuration make for a truly incredibly watch, ready to rock on any strap – jubilee to cordovan.
