Bicolour Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust model 1601(3) from around 1973 with champagne / baton “pie-pan” dial *. This early style of Jubilee 6252H14 bracelet with folded metal links is correct (14 relating to the yellow metal content and suggesting it was first supplied to the USA). Inevitably, at around 50 years old it shows signs of age and wear (reflected in the price) and we recommend that this watch now be saved for dress wear. Originally this watch will have been fitted with the softer, acrylic glass but has more recently been fitted with a generic synthetic sapphire glass that is NOT by Rolex. Typically these are harder-wearing than the originals, although a vintage purist might wish to revert. Because of its age, we offer this watch with only a ONE year warranty and ask you to note : (1) we no longer guarantee these older models to be water-resistant (2) this 1575 calibre model correctly has no “quick-set” facility for changing the date at the end of a short month, so the wearer must turn the hands through 24 hours to advance or reverse the date and (3) the bracelet especially shows signs of age. Ask one of our Rolex-trained specialists, Phil or Paul, to discuss this watch with you. It is priced very reasonably to reflect all the above and comes with a generic presentation box, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them.

* This name reflects the dial profile, its chapter ring edge dropping away from the main, central surface.
