Rolex 18K YG Datejust ref 1601 circa 1970


Vintage Rolex 18K YG Datejust ref# 1601 serial number 3.0 million circa 1970 with an exceptional chocolate tropical dial. Featuring a 36mm diameter Oyster case with fluted bezel, acrylic crystal and signed screw down crown, and with a glorious original dial with original glossy surface that has turned a syrupy chocolate color. With original gilt printing, signed T SWISS T, and with original lume plots intact.

The chocolate color is so rich, and the dial surface still glossy and not weathered, that we can almost visualize hot chocolate sliding down the scoop of ice cream on our favorite hot chocolate sundae! A dial and a sundae to dream for!

Powered by self winding caliber 1570 movement with date and sweep seconds. Shown on our burgundy color cordovan leather strap or your choice of sporty or dressy strap. A glorious looking man’s model or sporty oversized watch for a woman. Must be seen in person to fully appreciate the richness of the dial.

Guaranteed genuine, serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with a 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Your purchase includes our popular Italian leather watch pouch, great for travel or storage, a $55.00 value
