VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Rolex Oyster Datejust ref 1600 SS/14K YG circa 1963

$5,500.00

Vintage Rolex Datejust ref 1600 stainless steel and 14K gold, case serial # 1.6 million circa 1963 with a beautiful condition original champagne dial and with deeply oxidized smooth gold bezel, that betrays the easy life this watch must have lead sitting in a safety deposit box for years!

The pie pan dial is the classic Rolex champagne, with early style gold chevron hour markers, tapered Alpha hands, and patina’d luminous dots. Featuring 36mm diameter stainless steel case with acrylic crystal, and powered by self winding chronometer rated caliber 1560 movement with sweep seconds and date. With period SS and YG folded link Oyster bracelet with deployment clasp. Of course guaranteed genuine, serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

The 2 tone Datejust model is more commonly found as a reference 1601 with fluted bezel. The current example is quite unusual as a reference 1600 with original smooth bezel. As evident, we have left the oxidized 14K YG bezel untouched to show it’s rich toning, but we can hand polish to remove the tarnish return it to its more familiar bright finish.

Your watch purchase will arrive in our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $45 value! See photo.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
