1972 Rolex Datejust 1601 Blue Sigma Dial


Condition Analysis
The dial has all the attention on this one. The tritium lume is fairly puffy with all the markers intact. The hands are also original with some wear. The blue Sigma dial has some aging on the rim of the pie pan, but it is very common for its age. The case looks unpolished, with even lugs with a prominent brushed finish.

Curator Thoughts
The 1601 is a great start to any Rolex obsession or a perfect addition to a well-put-together collection. Featuring a pie pan dial, the 1601 has a nice vintage feel to it while still showing a sense of sophistication. From two-tone Sigma dials to all steel blue dials, the 1601 has so many fun configurations. On top of that, the prices are great, and the 36mm case wears like a dream. This 1601 is a dream for many, a stunning blue Sigma dial. Colored dial, 4-digit, Datejusts are only becoming harder to find. This example is not only a blue dial but also a Sigma example.
