Rolex Datejust 1601 Lavender Colour Change Dial


A change is as good as a rest…

Collectors of vintage Rolex love nothing more than something different or unusual, including colour change dials. The dial in this reference 1601 Datejust would have originally been grey, but over the past 50 years it has change to a beautiful and unusual lavender shade, we do not stumble over these very often.. The text on the dial remains crisp and the lume plots are all intact and are a good match with the lume in the hands. The case and bezel are in great and strong all-round condition. The jubilee bracelet, reference 6215 is in good condition and has ref 555 endlinks. The watch has been checked by our watchmaker. This is a cool watch and we love it. Maybe the coolest watch for summer that we’ve seen in a while. Grab it and get it on your wrist for your sunny summer fun!
