Rolex Datejust 1601 Silver Dial Alpha Hands Rare Clasp


A very rare clasp…

We always try and keep weel stocked with cool vintage Datejusts and this a lovely example with very cool hands and super rare clasp on the bracelet. The case is strong, with thick lugs and a well-defined fluted bezel.

The silver dial is in outstanding condition and has applied doorstop markers and nice patina on the lume plots. The folded link Jubilee bracelet is in good condition with reference 55 endlinks.
The stand out element of this piece is the super cool clasp that we believe was made for the Japanese market. The slow-set movement has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
