Rolex Ref. 1601

SOLD

The blue Datejust is, without question, the watch I am asked to source most often. A week doesn't go by where I don't answer at least a dozen emails explaining the rarity of these dials and the danger of the dozens of fakes on the market. Backing up, the vintage Rolex reference 1601 is my favorite vintage watch, there's no question. Not only is it incredibly versatile, equally as suitable from the bar to the boardroom, but its quality of construction and legendary maker are known across the globe. This example, with its crisp steel case, minty yellow gold fluted bezel, aged patina behind each hour marker and a stunning blue dial, is a dream. Finding Datejusts like this is a hunt, but it's my favorite hobby. It proves that less is more and there is still, after all of those years, value in vintage Rolex. This is one of my favorite watches and I know it’ll never disappoint.
