1601 Datejust ‘Ghost dial’

Are you ready to catch the Holy Ghost? Here’s one of the most beautiful and stunning Rolex Datejust watches we’ve encountered in a while. These ‘Ghost’ dial 1601’s are fairly rare and they don’t come up for sale that often, not to mention that the Ghost effect (the whitening of the dial and vanishing of the white text) on this particular dial is amazing and will put a big smile on any Watchnerds face!

This 1601 Datejust ‘Ghost’ dial is in a one hell of a condition with a fat and strong case which doesn’t show any damages whatsoever. Each lug is nice and thick and has the same size in width and length. The 18K white gold fluted bezel shows sharp edges and seems to be unpolished. The dial is of course the cherry on the cal here, this pie-pan dial is an absolute dream, just look at it! When this Datejust is on the wrist the colour of the dial changes from a mouse grey to a full blown ‘Casper the Ghost’ white, and everything in between – It’s truly spectacular! Apart from that beautiful colour and the sleek white printed text, the dial is adorned by remarkable, patinated Tritium dots. Each small dot is perfectly rounded, fully intact and shows a warm yellow patina – This truly is an unmolested and zero-damage dial. The 62510H Jubilee bracelet remains in an extremely good condition and qualifies in our humble opinion, as a stretch free bracelet. One thing I would like to mention is that there’s a small dent on the folding clasp, but really nothing too shocking – it will for sure not stop you from enjoying this very rare vintage Datejust to the fullest!

This absolutely stunning 1601 Datejust Ghost dial was fully serviced by our watchmakers and will be sold with a 24 month warranty.
