Rolex Datejust Ref 1601 “Buckley”
This, my geeks, is a helluva watch. It’s a Rolex Datejust, reference 1601 and it was manufactured In 1965.
It’s cased in 18k yellow gold, powered by the automatic 1570 caliber and topped with a remarkably rare lemon Buckley dial. Individually, these variables are desirable, sure. But together, they’re extraordinary.
First, the case. Absolutely immaculate in condition. Not only is it without a single significant scratch or dent, but it has retained its factory finishing – brushed lugs, a very sharp fluted bezel and polished sides.
In most circumstances, that case would be the most impressive asset of a given watch. But here, its the lemon Buckley dial steals the show. Not only is it one of the rarest dials in the Datejust world but its totally flawless in condition, it has managed to retain its original puffy tritium dots all around!
In short, this is one of the best examples of my favorite vintage watch of all time. Enjoy it!
