Rolex Datejust ref 1601 SS/14K YG circa 1966 Reversed Ref and Serial
Vintage Rolex Datejust ref 1601, stainless steel case & 14K yellow gold 1.2 million serial number circa 1966. Featuring a 36mm diameter case, with 14K yellow gold fluted bezel, and acrylic crystal. The watch features an original early stye champagne pie pan dial with faceted gold applied indexes and gilt baton hands. With beefy lug case that has been previously polished but with sharp, and not worn down gold fluted bezel.
This watch has a very unusual characteristic which is the case ref# and case serial # are in the reverse location typically found. The case ref # is between the lugs at the 6 o’clock position, while the case serial # is at the 12 o’clock position. We have seen this rarely in our years of business, and frankly do not know what the significance is. Clearly it is an unusual and distinctive characteristic in an otherwise fine condition vintage model.

Offered on your choice of sporty or fine leather or exotic skin strap. Great looking vintage everyday watch for man or oversized for a woman.
