This ref. 1601 from 1975 would make a great start for a new vintage collector or be a great addition to an expanding collection. We love the Rolex Datejust for its simplicity and its classic sophistication. Perfectly worn in any setting from formal to casual. A Sigma dial is a Rolex dial named for the letters printed at the bottom of the dial at the 6 o'clock position. Most Rolex dials are commonly marked with “T Swiss T,” under the 6 o'clock marker, however, a Sigma dial is marked “σ T SWISS T σ.” This signifies the use of gold components within the dial.
