Item Overview

Description

Item Description
Watch has been verified by a professional, and is 100% authentic, guaranteed !

This 1968 Rolex Datejust Reference 1601 is a quintessential symbol of sophistication and enduring style, reflecting the golden era of luxury timepieces. This particular men's watch is an all-original vintage piece, showcasing the distinguished combination of 14k gold and stainless steel that defines its two-tone aesthetic. The watch is powered by the revered Reference 1570 movement, featuring a precise 26-jewel automatic caliber that remains a testament to Rolex's commitment to exceptional craftsmanship.

The watch's face is adorned with a textured silver linen dial that exudes a subtle, understated elegance. Baton hands and markers complement the dial, while the iconic fluted bezel frames the cyclops date magnifier—a feature that immediately identifies the watch as a Datejust.

Encircling the wrist is the original Model 6251H Jubilee bracelet, dated 3/68, complete with a big crown clasp that provides a secure and comfortable fit for a wrist size between 7 inches and 7.75 inches. The end caps are of Model 55, ensuring a seamless flow from bracelet to case.

The case dimensions are impressively balanced, measuring 39mm wide with the crown and 36mm without, extending to 44mm from lug-to-lug, giving the watch a prominent presence on the wrist without compromising elegance. The total weight of the watch is a substantial 83.67 grams, further highlighting the quality of materials used in its construction.

Hans Wilsdorf's early 20th-century vision for a watch that was accurate, stylish, and wearable is fully realized in this timepiece. The Rolex Datejust 1601's two-tone style, complete with a cyclops date window, has become one of the most recognizable and sought-after designs in the world of horology. It stands not just as a piece of history, but as an icon of luxury and a clear indicator of success, particularly in America during its time. Despite its appreciation in value over the years, collectors still regard the 1601 as undervalued, suggesting its potential for future growth as both a collector's item and a stylish companion.
