Rolex Datejust SS/14K WG Linen Sigma Dial ref 1601 circa 1973


Rolex Datejust stainless steel ref 1601, serial# 3.3 million circa 1973. Featuring a 36mm diameter Oyster case with acrylic crystal, and very distinctive silver satin, linen finish dial with applied silver indexes and silver baton hands and warmly patina’d luminous dots for a nice vintage contrast. With a clean condition, previously polished case, and with original period Rolex rolled link Jubilee bracelet with deployment clasp.

The dial is truly a standout here. The linen dials are relatively scarce and lend a great vintage character to these retro models. The Sigma designation refers to the Greek letter that appears at the bottom of the dial on either side of the T SWISS T, and designates that the dial markers are gold, and not just plated metal. This dial configuration and condition make this a particularly fine example.

The watch is powered by the calibre 1570 self winding movement with date which has been recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, and is accompanied by our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

A great looking vintage man’s model. Your watch purchase also includes our fine glazed leather WBAW watch travel pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $55 value!
