ROLEX DATEJUST 1601 ‘GHOST’
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 Rolex Datejust 1601 ‘Ghost’ is in an incredible 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 of course 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, there’s no other way to describe it! Apart from the beautiful colour and the sleek white printed text, the dial is adorned by truly stunning Tritium dots. Each small dot is perfectly rounded, fully intact and shows a warm yellow patina – This truly is the stuff us vintage watch lovers hunt for! The 62510H Jubilee bracelet remains in a very good condition and is nearly stretch free. One thing worth mentioning is that there’s a small dent on the folding clasp, but nothing too shocking – it will for sure not stop you from enjoying this Ghostly vintage Datejust to the fullest!
This not so scary 1601 was fully serviced and will be sold with a twelve month warranty.
