rolex datejust vintage pre-owned watch from 1976, a watch produced in the last years of manufacture of the Rolex 1601 Datejust, with its fluted bezel, a plexiglass glass with cyclops magnifying glass and golden inserts in relief on a clear dial which over time has taken on a slightly champagne tint. This luxury watch, whose production began in the early sixties, will sustainably keep the public's preference for the next twenty years in terms of luxury watches for men. An excellent watchmaking classic brought to the screen by many actors, its familiar appearance to all audiences will also classify Rolex as one of the greatest watchmakers in the world.
In the face of its tremendous growth, many manufacturers are trying in vain to develop their models without being able to falter the sales volume generated by the Rolex Datejust and Jubilee bracelet combination. With the Datejust model, Rolex is taking a considerable lead in today's market share. But with the grand return of vintage from the seventies, fashionistas are seizing it to proudly wear this vintage watch on the wrist, a favourite of social networks and Instagram influencers. Today, this still accessible model is increasingly sought after as its history and notoriety contribute to its enthusiasm.
From a technical point of view, the Rolex Datejust 1601 is a robust watch, its Rolex 1570 mechanism one of the most famous of its generation (for a long time, it equipped professional models such as the Rolex submariner,GMT master or explorer of the time) is also very durable and precise. Categorized as a COSC chronometer, given its regularity and performance, this 26-jewel self-winding movement can be considered the benchmark in terms of quality among the movements of its generation. Easy to maintain, equipped with a high-performance shockproof device, equipped with a comfortable power reserve, the Rolex 1601, on the strength of its success, will evolve without revolutionizing in the following decade, so perfect was the score that enabled it to see the light of day.
From a collection point of view, it is one of the watches that a collector or an amateur will always wear with great pleasure. Affordable and discreet watch, while emanating luxury and quality, the size of its 36 mm case and its thin case class it as a watch compatible with all male or female wrists.The shape of its case combines perfectly with the aesthetics of the jubilee bracelet that accompanies it. It can also be worn at any age and in any situation without the risk of being mismatched or out of place.
