1970 Rolex Datejust Ref.1601 Steel & Gold

Free Worldwide Insured Shipping with FedEx / Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

If you're looking for a vintage watch for daily use, the Rolex Datejust is apparently the first to consider! It combines basically everything you may ever need on daily basis: outstanding timeless design matching literally any outfit, perfectly balanced 36 mm size, waterproof capabilities of the famous Oyster family, and of course legendary precision and durability of Rolex automatic chronometer movements. 

This particular watch is notable for its yellow gold bezel and crown (a more common combination for this reference is white gold bezel and steel crown), strong case, and amazingly preserved sunburst dial with original intact tritium. Honest, beautiful, perfect for summer!

To make it even nicer we added our gorgeous Smooth Tan Zermatt Strap which works really well with bi-metallic design.
