1973 Rolex Datejust St/WG Grey Sigma Dial Ref. 1601
Monochrome - Datejusts come in an array of dial colors and configurations. The present watch has one of the nicest 'basic' colors, the slate grey, but that's not it. One thing we discovered that the hour batons have a white enemel inlay making them really stand out. We haven't seen many of these. The stainless steel & white gold Datejust blends nicely with the grey dial to a pretty monochrome look but with a touch, the color is really elegant. The overall condition of the watch is very good and we believe it didn't get much wrist time..

Released in 1945 to celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary, the Datejust was the first automatic chronometer wristwatch to indicate the date through a window on the dial. The Datejust is characterized by its date window under the ‘cyclops’ window. Iconic vintage Datejusts were made in 36mm case diameter, with a range of steel and precious metal versions.
