Rolex Datejust 1601 Rare Ghost Dial

On Hold

This is one of the rarest and most sought-after Rolex Datejusts – the Ghost Dial.

We absolutely love these watches and they are so unique on the wrist - every twist and turn the dial takes, gives a different look and in some cases the text disappears…hence the name Ghost!

This cool DJ has an amazing case with very fat even lugs and a sharp white gold fluted bezel. Just a perfect example! The dial is in lovely condition with crisp text and great hour markers and the finish is really funky! The folded Jubilee bracelet is super tight, with no stretch and has reference 55 endlinks. The movement has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.

“We often say that a Datejust is a perfect Rolex to start your collection or it can be a beautiful addition to an existing collection. Well, this piece belongs in every serious collection, in my opinion!” Cheers Berend Bulang

Our Service

Each vintage timepiece is individually selected and carefully inspected by our team of experts. After we buy a watch it is mechanically inspected and fully checked by our watchmaker. If necessary, the movement will be fully serviced and tested to ensure it is running to our exacting standards.

We will always describe the watch as fully as we can in our sales texts. Our zoomable images are of the highest possible quality and form an important part of each watch’s description. We will never hide or cover up any element of any watch we sell.

Key to our unparalleled service is Fedex Priority shipping, fully insured. Once you have received your watch, we encourage you to inspect it thoroughly. If you are not 100% satisfied, please let us know. We offer a 14 days return policy. Simply return the watch to get a full refund of the original purchase price.

Our Warranty

We offer a one-year warranty on the mechanical function of the watch, starting from the day of purchase. We do not guarantee the waterproof nature of any (vintage) watch, unless expressly made in writing. Therefore, our warranty will not cover any damage done to the case and/or movement by water or moisture entering the watch. Our warranty does not apply to accidental damage or mishandling of your watch and does not extend to the bracelet, case parts (including pushers, winding stem, crown and bezel), watch glass, dial and hands.
