Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Ref 1601 Cal 1570
This is probably the best bang for buck Rolex Datejust on eBay. The watch is a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde as from the front the watch looks fantastic, the dial is immaculate and the case is in good condition. The glass and crown are both original. It’s only until you turn the watch over do you find why the watch is priced at what it is. It appears that someone used and angle grinder or pickaxe to open up the caseback. The caseback is also from 1971. The movement is in quite good condition though. The watch also comes with its original Jubilee bracelet but it is nothing special as it is well worn and strached. We have fitted the watch with a brand new Hirsch leather strap. If you’re after a Rolex at a great price but 34mm is too small, this is the watch for you.
The dial is silver in color with a sun burst pattern. The hour markers and Rolex crown are silver inserts. The Hour, Minute and Seconds hands are silver in color with the Hour and Minute hands having luminous compound. Each lume pip is still intact. There is a date window at the 6 o’clock position.
