Rolex Datejust 1601 - No-Lume Dial 
In the 60s and 70s Rolex produced the 4-digit 16XX series. This Rolex Datejust reference 1601 dates back to 1972. The classic folded Jubilee bracelet in combination with the sharp 18K white gold bezel, makes this Datejust 1601 elegant, timeless and perfect for daily use. Characteristic of the 16XX series, is that they were given the well-known "pie-pan" dial. This Datejust 1601 does not have a normal silver ''pie-pan'' dial, but is provided with the ''no-lume'' dial in combination with the matching closed hands. Rolex dials were printed by manufacturers such as Stern, Beyeler, Lemrich, Singer, and were standardly provided with a ''T-swiss-T'' printing. Some Asian countries, like Japan, enforced strict rules when it came to the import of products with radioactive substances. These countries therefore received dials without tritium and closed hands. The tritium was only applied at a later stage. This was done because it was decided later to which country the watch would be exported.

- Original No-Lume dial with matching closed hands
- Sharp case and 18K whitegold fluted bezel
- 3122XXX Serial dates back to

Rolex Datejust 
In the year 1945 the first Datejust was introduced in honour of the 40-year existence of Rolex, under the reference 4467. This was the first self-winding watch with a watertight case that also indicated the date. It even automatically transitioned the date after midnight. The Datejust was equipped with a serrated bezel and the famous Jubilee bracelet, especially designed for the Datejust. The date was placed on the 3-hour mark. Ten years later, in 1955, the date-window was given a "cyclops lens", which magnifies the date up to two and a half times. 

Rolex's most iconic models were produced to function as "tool watches". The Datejust, however, did not have a specific purpose. This model was supposed to be a classic, reliable, everyday watch, suitable for any occasion in day-to-day life.
