Rolex 18K YG Datejust ref 1601 Rare Chocolate Dial circa 1978

SOLD

A stunning example Rolex 18K YG Datejust ref 1601, serial# 5.4 million circa 1978. Featuring a 36mm diameter case with fluted bezel, acrylic crystal and with remarkable original chocolate (taupe/green) color pie pan dial with gold applied indexes and warmly patina’d lume plots and matching gilt hands. Powered by self winding calibre 1570 movement with sweep seconds and date. Fully serviced and lightly detailed and offered on your choice of fine leather or exotic skin strap. With our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

NOTE: The color and condition of the dial is truly remarkable. We are calling it brown, but it has an especially pleasing and distinctive greenish, taupish brown color.  It is neither gray, nor anthracite, nor gun metal. The dial surface lume plots are intact and have turned a warm patina’d tan color which perfectly complements the dial color. The lume in the hands has naturally aged and matches the warm patina of the dial. A stunning, imminently wearable time piece that is sure to turn heads with it’s unique palette!

Your purchase includes our fine Italian glazed leather watch pouch, ideal for travel and storage. A $55
