This excellent Datejust 1601R 14k Rose Gold and Stainless steel is available freshly serviced, the watch has a production date of 1976, and the clasp code A, the very first time a clasp code was printed in a bracelet can be seen on the inside blades of the 1601R bracelet. The end links are 455R and the bracelet is still very nice, it is slightly worn- and there is a slight looseness to the bracelet, please pay attention to the hallmarks, the 1601R- Sigma dial has a Rose Gold gilt print, that has now turned a fast Pink color. The dial is Singer, and the rest of the pics when the service was done can be shared with the end buyer/ client. The serial number is 4,1XX,XXX - dating 1976.
The bracelet on the 1601R is approximately 7 inches only, and you might be aware that 1601R links are near impossible to find. So please treat this non-quick set, caliber 1570 with the utmost care.
As the watch is serviced here at PTC, 48 hr. testing rates tell us that it maintains a fabulous chronometer time throughout the day, even at a lower rate of wind- it still maintains it's chronometer timing. A hallmark of a very well produced timepiece. The DJ1601R was likely in it's production end years, because immediately after this time, the transitional caliber the 3035 was in production at Rolex S.A. from 1977 onwards.
A small footnote: The camera just does not pickup the Rose Gold on the case and on the bracelet, it shows as a more yellow gold in a color mode, but when viewed in person in daylight, one can very clearly make out the Rose Gold 14k on the fine condition bezel, and the bracelet's links. The watch comes in a handy storage pouch.
