Rolex White Gold Datejust Tropical Dial Reference 1601


The Tiger Stripe Tropical Gilt Datejust 

We have always been big fans of the once-humble Datejust, a watch that is now seriously on the radar of collectors. The one on offer here is extra special, however, due to the fact that the original black gilt dial has turned a tropical brown colour, in a unique way that looks like tiger stripes…it’s seriously cool on the wrist! The second interesting element is that the  Complete watch-case and bracelet are in white gold. The watch retains a strong case and retains its original fluted bezel in very nice condition. The white gold bracelet has a clasp stamped ‘66’ and is in very tight, outstanding condition. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker and will come with an additional strap of your choice from our webshop.
