Steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Chronometer Ref. 1600 vintage wristwatch, dated 1976

A fine stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with date, Rolex Oyster bracelet and Rolex presentation case

This is an outstanding example of the Datejust Ref. 1600. The watch has a superb, satin finished champagne dial that is in outstanding original condition, with a rich depth of colour and a chamfered outer minutes/seconds track which creates a two-tone appearance and gives a greater sense of depth to the surface. The 1600 series Rolex Datejust has become one of the most iconic of Rolex’s vintage production and is also one of the largest, with a case diameter of 36mm. Although the smooth, chamfered bezel was a standard feature of other Rolex Oyster models, the Datejust is more usually seen with the reeded or milled bezels such as those found on the Refs. 1601 and 1603.

The automatically wound movement is a Rolex calibre 1570 with 26 jewels and also incorporates a hack feature; when the crown is pulled out to set the time, the seconds hand is stopped, thereby allowing easy synchronisation to a time signal. The watch is fitted with its original stainless steel Rolex Oyster model 78360 bracelet and adjustable folding clasp which is date stamped for 1976. The accompanying wood and green leather Rolex presentation case is in good condition without padded lining.

As part of this watch’s service and overhaul it has been resealed and tested for water resistance for depths up to 100m.
