Hello and thanks for looking at my listing. Here we have my own Rolex Datejust 1601 gents Swiss watch.I have owned this approx 5 years. I believe the watch dates from around 1978-9.
I would describe the watch as in overall good condition but it is of course used and vintage and is therefore showing some superficial signs of wear commensurate with its age and use, but on the wrist it looks fantastic with a gorgeous blue sunburst pie-pan dial (very difficult to capture in the photos) with lovely vintage style open 6's and 9's on the date wheel. The strap is a recent Ostrich style genuine leather item from Geckota showing hardly any wear at all. The watch was serviced (before I bought it) in 2013 and as you can see the movement is in very good condition being clean and working as it should. It is a calibre 1570 and the date is NON quickset. The hands are either Rolex service replacement or possibly aftermarket- impossible to tell.
The case, in my opinion, has been slightly over-polished at some point in the past. In between and underneath the lugs is a little gnarly, however quite normal on Rolexes of this vintage which had the Jubilee bracelet fitted at some point. Regardless of the above points the watch looks fantastic on the wrist and none of these items detract from its aesthetic appeal. There are no original box or papers.
However, the watch will be supplied in a generic watch box to protect it during transit. Photographs taken on day of listing (apologies for the reflections, nightmare time trying to capture this).
