1963 Rolex Datejust (Ref. 1601) Non-Luminous Dial

The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and most beloved Rolex watches ever made, even though the Datejust was launched in 1945 it has remained a timeless classic and is instantly recognizable as an item of refined quality and functional design. The Datejust can be worn just as easily with a suit as it can be with jeans and a tee shirt. The Datejust would make a great start for a new vintage collector, or be a great addition to an expanding collection.
