Watch collectors, as well as those new to the market, have become increasingly interested in vintage watches, especially with interest rates being so poor we have seen a huge rise in demand for a vintage Rolex, making nice examples like this beautiful 1601 harder and harder to find. The Rolex 1601 manages to carry that vintage feel, while simultaneously offering practicality. It’s basically an older version of the Datejust that will never go out of style. The 1601 is a perfect size for a vintage watch at 36mm, together with the plexi crystal standing higher than the bezel gives it that extra vintage flare. Our 18ct Gold version fitted with the classic jubilee bracelet together with this rare champagne-bronzed dial. Powered by the well trusted 1570 Rolex caliber that was also used in the Submariner, Seadweller, and GMT of that era, and is regarded by watchmakers as one of the most reliable movements out there. The Rolex 1601 is a great looking vintage watch that can actually be worn everyday. With prices steadily on the increase, now is the time to invest!!! Our watch comes complete with box and papers (including chronometer certificate). Our piece bears the serial number 2834**** was manufactured by Rolex in 1969, although wasn’t retailed until September 1972 at Klarlund an official Rolex Centre in Copenhagen. Full set examples like this are virtually unfindable.
