Rolex Datejust 1601 White Gold Bezel (1969)
Admired for its subtle elegance and robust design, the Rolex Datejust synthesises all the essential qualities that Rolex is so highly praised for. This particular Datejust 1601 model from 1969 radiates qualities of sophistication and importance while engineered to be one of the most durable watches of its time. This is testament to this watch’s incredible condition. Baton steel markers are positioned around the circumference of a rich black dial, a contrasting noir to the dazzling golds and silvers of the typical Datejust. Fitted on a black leather strap and measuring at 36mm, this Datejust fits comfortably on the wrist and pairs effortlessly with casual dress.
Importantly this example from 1969 features a desirable white gold case. Back in the '60s, stainless steel bezels could only be polished to a certain degree. Therefore Rolex gave the luxurious option of a white gold bezel for the 1601 Datejust- a sizeable expense at the time. Over 50 years later, the shine on this Datejust is still a level above the rest, continually breathing new life into this vintage timepiece. The Datejust 1601 is an example of expert craftsmanship and timeless design which will forever be appreciated by even the most casual observer.
