Rolex SS/14K Rose Gold Datejust ref 1601 circa 1969

SOLD

Vintage man’s Rolex stainless steel and 14K pink gold Datejust ref 1601 serial # 2.1 million circa 1969. Full sized man’s model 36mm diameter Oyster case with 14K pink gold fluted bezel and acrylic crystal. With original “taupe gray” dial with applied silver applied indexes and silver baton hands. Powered by self winding caliber 1570 movement with sweep seconds and date. With Rolex stainless steel and 14K pink gold rolled link Jubilee bracelet with deployment clasp. Serviced and detailed and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation. A distinctive looking man’s model or oversized for a woman.

NOTE: Most 1601 vintage 1960’s Datejusts were produced in all stainless steel or steel and 14K yellow gold. A relatively small number were produced in steel and rose (or pink) gold, particularly for the South American market which favored pink gold over yellow gold. The current example is particularly unusual as the dial and hands are silver, and not pink, while the bezel, crown, and bracelet are pink. The dial color is a very unusual deep taupe gray color, which we think looks fabulous against the gold. A great looking and distinctive vintage model. We don’t expect it to stick around long!

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.
