Rolex Datejust ref 1601 Stainless Steel “Fat Boy” circa 1970


Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust ref 1601 serial# 2.6 million circa 1970. 36mm diameter case with 14K WG fluted bezel and acrylic crystal and original silver satin pie pan “Fat Boy” dial with wide applied silver indexes and silver baton hands. The hands and dial indexes on this particular “fat boy” dial (as we affectionately refer to this model) are interesting in that they have a fine grainy slightly recessed center panel, running through the center of each marker and hand. Furthermore, though properly signed T SWISS T, this example was produced without luminous to the hands or the dial.

Powered by calibre 1570 self winding movement with sweep seconds and date. With Rolex period stainless steel rolled link Jubilee bracelet with deployment clasp with date code for 1971. Just serviced and detailed and offered with a 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Great classic vintage man’s model for a man or woman.

Your purchase of this watch will be accompanied by one of our popular fine Italian glazed leather pouches, ideal for travel and storage, a $45 value.
