Rolex Datejust ref 1601 “Steel Blue” circa 1972


Rolex Stainless Steel Datejust ref 1601 serial number 3.2 million circa 1972. 36mm diameter Oyster case with 14K WG fluted bezel, acrylic crystal, original “steel blue” dial and signed Rolex crown. The original blue pie pan dial is in excellent condition with large applied indexes and white printing. Blue dials of this era typically fade or show loss of color in certain areas of the dial. The current example is unusual in terms of the richness of color and it’s excellent preservation. Powered by self winding caliber 1570 movement with date and sweep seconds. On Rolex stainless steel rolled link jubilee bracelet with deployment clasp. A beautiful variation on the classic vintage Rolex theme for a man, or oversized for a woman.

Guaranteed genuine, serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with a 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Also accompanying your purchase is one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $55 value!
