HISTORY IN BRIEF
The Rolex Datejust was one of the most important commercial success in the history of Rolex.
It was presented in 1945 and at the time it was really a striking innovation: waterproof case, date function, automatic caliber.
Over the years, many aesthetic variants were offered by Rolex, each with a different reference, usually relating to the finish adopted for the bezel.
The present reference 1601 Datejust belongs to the first series batch.
This fact can be noticed by the low serial number between the lugs (0,897,XXX), by the swiss only dial and the feuille hands.
The case is unpolished and the dial, the bracelet, the caseback, the caliber all perfectly match condition-wise.
The watch was produced in 1962 and all of its components match the production period : swiss only dial, feuille hands, Twinlock crown, Jubilee folded bracelet, 18kt gold bezel, 1601 1/63 signed caseback, 1560 cosc caliber.
