Why This Watch is Significant. Because you cant go wrong with a Rolex Datejust, especially with a grey dial and when it was just serviced with a 1-year guarantee. Sometimes you just want something simple, cool, and classic, and that something is a Datejust. This reference 1601 is a beautiful example with a dark grey dial and stick indexes. A great feature of this watch is that it was produced without lume plots, so you dont have to worry about any falling off.
The hands are service replacements that were installed with the fresh October 2020 service. The best thing about this example, though, is how killer it looks on the wrist. Overall this is an excellent to near mint Datejust. The bracelet is in excellent condition.
The case and bracelet were given a light refinish to bring back that classic factory Datejust look. But nothing crazy, the lugs are sharp and the case is thick. The bezel has minimal signs of aging and still has the factory white gold sheen to it, and the no-lume dial is beautiful.
The bezel does have a small crack at 3 o'clock, although it's hardly noticeable because I had my watchmaker rotate it towards the 3 o'clock position. The 6251 bracelet with correct 55 end links is in excellent condition and has the classic polished center links with brushed end links.It has almost no stretch to the bracelet. Service paperwork and 1-year guarantee are included. Oyster Perpetual, Swiss Made, Swiss Movement, Datejust. Up to 8.0 inch Wrist, full links.
