Rolex Datejust Ref. 1601 ‘Sigma Silver’ Dial 1973

Regular price
Unit price


The Rolex Datejust has been the backbone of Rolex's catalog since 1945. In this specific reference 1601 from 1973, it has everything you want and need in an everyday watch - an easy to read date function, fluted white gold bezel, a gorgeous Jubilee bracelet and the iconic 1570 caliber running under the caseback. This particular watch has a lovely warmed dial featuring the Sigma logo under the 6 o'clock position adjacent to the "Swiss" tagline. Serial has been checked as 34XXXXX pointing to a 1973 production date.

Personal Comments: 
The Datejust is one of the most easiest to wear watches - the ability to pair this from a double breasted suit to even sweatpants while making a grocery run concludes it is the perfect companion for anyone. I personally believe a vintage Datejust is a must have for any collector to own or for anyone looking for their first Rolex.
