Rolex Datejust Two Tone ‘Rose’ Gold 1601



We have long been exponents of the once humble Datejust here at Bulang and Sons. We love interesting and rare examples of this Rolex stalwart and today we have one to offer with a bit of a twist. It’s rare to see two tone DJs where the gold is rose coloured. On this example the fluted bezel is 18ct rose gold, as is the winding crown which gives the watch a warm feel. The matte black dial has the text and applied hour markers in rose gold too. All lume plots are intact and have a nice aged patina that matches the hand lume. The bracelet is in good condition, with a ‘2/61’ stamped clasp and an additional ‘R’ stamp for the rose gold links on the two tone bracelet. The bracelet is in very good condition, but is a little on the short side, measuring 14.3cm with a total of 20 links. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker and will come with a strap of your choice from our web shop*.
