Rolex Datejust*** 1601 Buckley Dial*** 1972 CHF 5,200.00
ROLEX Datejust with White Roman Buckley Dial, Ref. 1601, 1972
Serial: 3323320
Circa: 1972
Reference: 1601

DIAL: White step dial with black printed hour markers and beveled date aperture at 3 o’clock.

CASE: 36mm, stainless steel with white gold fluted bezel and acrylic glass with loupe for date at 3 o’clock

MOVEMENT: Caliber 1570, Self-winding mechanical movement with 26 jewels

BRACELET: Rolex stainless steel Jubilee bracelet 6251H/55

CONDITION REPORT: Excellent and all original condition. The dial has aged to a beautiful even cream color and trititum markers are intact with stunning amber patina. The hands are original with the tritium lume also remaining intact. The case is very sharp and appears unpolished. It has some pitting between the lugs, but was cleaned and serial number and reference both visible. The bracelet shows light stretch and wear, but is still excellent condition and appears to be full links.
The movement was fully overhauled in August 2020.

NOTES: The Datejust is considered to be one of the most classic and iconic models of Rolex. Introduced in 1945, the Datejust was the first wristwatch with a chronometer movement featuring an automatic calendar and a first to jump precisely at midnight. It was also the world's first fully waterproof wristwatch with automatic winding and central seconds-hand. The size of 36mm in diameter, the shape of the Oyster case and the cyclops that magnifies the date window by 2.5 times are the hallmarks of future Rolex models. The Datejust is still the king of vintage watches as it offers a story, a reliable automatic movement and the date. Essentially, it satisfies all essential criteria one is looking for in a vintage Rolex and is a perfect heirloom.
