1978 Rolex Datejust 36mm Transitional 1601/3 - Serviced

Not in stock


This is a very rare transitional 1601/3 Datejust. The very last 1601 cases for 1575 movements had already been marked 16013 for YG/SS and 16014 for WG/SS. These cases only fit the 1575 movements and not the cal. 3035, which a regular 16013 would house. It lacks the comfort of a quick-set date but makes up for this with its rarety, which makes it quite saught after by collectors. This one has just been serviced and comes with a one year warranty.
