Offered here is a superb example of the Rolex Datejust with the rare combination of the Sigma stamp and silver stepped dial Stainless Steel case reference 1601 manufactured circa 1978.
The Sigma dial is a Rolex dial identified by the letters printed at the bottom of the dial at the 6 o'clock position. Most Rolex dials are commonly marked with “T Swiss T,” under the 6 o'clock marker, however, a Sigma dial is marked “σ T SWISS T σ.” This signifies the use of gold components within the dial.
This stunning example has the correct silver Sigma manufactured “pie pan dial” with date aperture for its 532---- serial number range.
This is a special reference 1601 Datejust. Not only does it have a white gold bezel, but it also has a stepped dial. Along with the Sigma marks O” either side of the “T SWISS T” confirming the hour indices and hands are white gold.
This specific ref. 1601 from 1978 would make a great start for a new vintage collector or could be a great addition to an expanding collection.
The Rolex Datejust is appreciated for its simplicity and its classic sophistication; perfectly worn in any setting from formal to casual.
The overall condition of this vintage Sigma dial Datejust is very good. The case appears to have been very lightly polished in the past but retains strong equal lugs along with the brushed finish to the top edges remaining very well defined, the white gold fluted bezel has no dings or scratches and compliments the overall appearance of this 36mm Datejust.
The silver stepped Sigma dial is in beautiful condition with no flaws to the tritium hour plots along with the white gold baton markers and hands that are all matching in colour. The Plexiglass is the correct ‘Top Hat’ style inclusive of the Cyclops date window for this model, it is also free of any scratches or marks.
The watch comes on the correct type of Rolex Jubilee folded link bracelet and 555 end links. The bracelet is showing light wear and minimal stretch.
The watch is accompanied with a Xupes presentation watch box.
