Original SWISS-only dial during the transition year 1963 that all Rolex luminous dials were replaced with the T SWISS T versions. A beautiful pie-pan dial with light age polka-dots. Original set of Alpha Hands. Runs well and keeps time showing a service in 1972...... That's been a while, so while there may have been a more recent service please plan routine service.
Showing plenty of wear as evidenced by the case back but obviously very carefully worn during it's use as it has not been sanded and polished, yet there are no heavy marks, no case chatter, and the bezel still has sharp flutes with no hits. Buyers or contact me first. I have seen the supposedly rare Rolex "coffin boxes" (which can be found fairly easily) and many other unusual Rolex boxes but never this eccentric box! A Rolex box collectors dream.
This was the original box for the watch, I believe. Rolex 1601 is a 36 mm diameter watch not including the crown.
