The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and most beloved Rolex watches ever made. Launched in 1945, it has remained a timeless classic, instantly recognizable as an item of advanced quality and functional design. The Datejust’s exemplary style makes it an extremely versatile choice, worn just as easily with a suit as with jeans and a t-shirt. The Datejust would make a wonderful starting point for a new vintage collector and is always a great addition to an expanding collection.
This specific 1975 Datejust Ref. 1600 retains its original Grey “Pie Pan” stick marker dial, it’s original and elusive smooth stainless steel bezel, and is in excellent condition. This piece would make a great start for a new vintage collector, or be a great addition to an expanding collection. We love the early Rolex Datejust for its simplicity and its classic sophistication.

CASE & Bracelet
The excellent case has been very lightly polished in the past to retain strong finishing and full lugs, the case shows almost no signs of use. The smooth stainless steel bezel is in superb condition showing almost no signs of use. The watch will come supplied on a 2pc handmade Leather strap.
DIAL & HANDS
The beautiful grey sunburst “pie-pan” dial accents perfectly with the smooth bezel, giving the watch a larger presence to the eye. The tritium lume plots have aged to an attractive yellow coloration, under U.V. light inspection the 1 o’clock lume plot shows some light degradation and remains intact, the rest of the lume plots remain full and round without degradation. The original tritium hands match the dial nicely and show no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The metallic date wheel is correct with open 6’s and 9’s.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time within COSC spec, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
