The Ocean      -      this Datejust is one rare watch. Stone dials in general appear in 5-digit Day Date references, none of them are known to ever have been fitted into 4-digit Day Date references. The only 36mm reference fitted with a stone dial is the 1601 and like on the Day Date examples, the stone dials were only fitted in precious metal cases. The watch dates to 1973 and is in incredible condition. The case is strong and well defined showing sharp edges. The full length bracelet is in very good condition and matching to the case, its hard to believe that its almost 50 years old.The main highlight is without a doubt the dial. The original Lapis dial is in excellent condition, not showing any wear from age. The surface is immaculate and free of any chips, hairlines or cracks. This particular Lapis dial is the most beautiful we have ever seen. The dark blue color paired with the brighter portions and gold sparkles is mesmerizing and makes you think of the ocean. The gold graphics are perfect and don't show any imperfections. If you count the 1601 fitted with a Lapis dial today you will only see a handful examples but to find one in this condition and mesmerizing dial composition will be difficult.
