Rolex Datejust Ref. 1601/8 Lapis Lazuli w/ RSC documents
Rolex was always known for their innovations, both in design and materials. In the later half of the 20th century Rolex became world renowned for their use of exotic substances in their dials, the most coveted of these materials being stone dials. This incredible example featuring an immaculate lapis lazuli dial is one of the most attractive rare and attractive I have seen. The non quick Ref. 1601 case remains thick and sharp and the stone dial is free from any wear, chips, cracking or hairlines, which is a true rarity. Fitted with matching non-luminous hands, long hidden clasp 18k yellow gold president bracelet, and just coming back from a full Rolex Service Center cleaning and inspection this is truly a piece to behold.
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.

This is why you'll find our curated assortment spans decades of generations of models and brands. We believe that watches don't just tell time, they tell history - and life is too short to wear a boring watch.
