Rolex Datejust Ref. 1601

T&H REVIEWS


SOLD

Let’s talk about the Datejust: to me, it’s the perfect watch. A vintage Rolex Datejust is one of the few material items that you can realistically acquire, wear proudly, enjoy for the rest of your life and, when the day comes, pass down to the next generation to do the same. A watch like this is never out of place – from scotch and soda on a NATO to boring C-suite meetings on a cordovan strap, it never fails to serve you well, impressing the tasteful.

This example, with its crispy steel case, tasteful yellow gold fluted bezel and beautiful champagne dial further 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.

My purchase and overall expierence with Theo and Harris was absolutely wonderful. I sent in an email inquiring about doing a trade plus some extra cash. Christian responded very quickly and a very fair deal was made after some research on his end. I paid on a friday and the watch was delivered on the following Tuesday. I am absolutely thrilled with the watch and the overall buying experience. Christian was so very helpful and quick to respond to any question that I had. I think that I was impressed the most by the care and service that was provided.

The only partner I trust to provide the best examples of vintage watches.I have partnered with Christian at Theo & Harris for just over a year. I've purchased several watches from him and each has been an excellent value. I've even partnered with Christian to resell some of my vintage pieces as I made adjustments to my collection. Christian is consistently a wealth of information, truthful in his approach, dogmatic about what's a solid value and what is not. I couldn't ask for a better parter to source quality vintage time pieces. The business mantra of T&H to provide an experience far and above the simple purchasing of vintage time pieces shines through with each experience.I am happy to report I've just purchased my next vintage piece from him and don't expect to stop anytime soon.

First-class operation. Christian and team place a high premium on earning trust and they make sure you are satisfied. Received personalized follow-up after the sale, and my entire experience was excellent. Highest marks! Thank you T&H!

I recently purchased a vintage birth-year Omega from them and it went as smooth as the sweeping seconds hand of a Seiko Spring Drive. Price was market price and the condition of the watch exceeded my expectations. Obviously it's not perfect since it's a watch that's over 30 years old but great for its age. Delivery was prompt and only took a couple of days to arrive in Hong Kong. Any answers were replied quickly and Christian was extremely helpful. Definitely recommend.

I have nothing but great things to say about the watches sold by Theo & Harris as well as the customer service provided by Christian and the T&H team! It is clear that they care about what they do and, perhaps more importantly, about their customers. After quite a bit of searching, I purchased an amazing vintage Rolex from T&H, and I could't be happier with the result. It is a beautiful watch, and the purchasing process couldn't have been smoother. If you are hesitant about purchasing a vintage watch online, you shouldn't be. Everything is as promised, and judging by their continued success, I am certain that they will be around a long time. I would certainly buy another timepiece from them, and have already recommended T&H to friends and colleagues interested in buying a vintage watch. Keep up the great work, T&H!!!!
