Bicolour Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust model 1601(3) from around 1970 with silver / baton “pie-pan” dial. This name reflects the dial profile, its chapter ring edge dropping away from the central surface. The early style of Jubilee bracelet with folded metal links is correct, though it has been fitted with a 62510H service clasp at some point after 1990. Originally this watch will have been fitted with the softer, acrylic glass but it appears more recently to have been fitted with a third party (non-Rolex) synthetic sapphire glass. Typically these are harder wearing than the originals, though a vintage purist might wish to revert. Because of its age, we offer it 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 the date (3) the bracelet and dial both show signs of age and wear (4) while running well, there is slightly more noise from the movement rotor than you might expect from a modern watch. 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.
