ROLEX DATEJUST REF. 1601
Fine stainless steel self-winding wristwatch with silver dial, date and steel jubilee strap.
In 1905, Hans Wilsdorf created his brand in London with his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis. Like a futuristic genius, Wilsdorf never imagined that he would found the most emblematic watch brand in the world.
He never stops to innovate and to patent a large number of inventions. He chooses to position the brand in the high-end luxury sector and offers robust, reliable, precise watches with a strong character. He leaves his mark on the history of Swiss watchmaking.
Today, the brand is undoubtedly the most collected and world records are set in auctions. In short, Rolex is the brand of the 20th century.
The model presented here is a beautiful DateJust model, the reference 1601 from 1970 in very good condition. It is a stainless steel round case of 36 mm diameter with a fluted bezel. Silver dial with applied stick indexes. Straight hands and central second hand. Date window at 3. Self-winding mechanical movement, caliber 1570, chronometer certified.
This is the quintessence of Rolex, a watch that has marked many generations and which has a place of choice in the catalogue of the brand, a beautiful piece not to be missed.
