1970 Rolex Datejust 1601 WideBoy Dial

Condition Analysis
A perfect Datejust. This 1601 is in good condition for its age. A clean Wideboy dial with very even tritium patina. The original folded link jubilee fits up to an 8-inch wrist which is perfect. It does have some slack but still has a lot of life left to it. All around, this is one of the cleanest wideboy Datejusts we've recently had.

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. It's always fun to find small differences in vintage Rolex so these wideboys are so cool to hunt for.
