Rolex Datejust 1601/4 Matte Black 1977 has arrived.
There are very few 4-digit Datejusts in good condition, but even among those 4-digit numbers, there are matte black dials that are hard to come by these days. Compared to the standard silver dial, there are few blue and black dials called color dials.
As you can see from the photos, matte black in such a beautiful condition is rare. Moreover, what is amazing is that it is an individual with a guarantee paper (warranty). There are really few Datejusts from the 1970s that come with a warranty. 4-digit Datejust matte black with papers. It is recommended for those who are tired of wearing a heavy watch because it weighs about 100g while having a vintage texture that has been used for many years. (By the way, the current Datejust, for example, Ref.126234 is 122g)
This single buckle is easy to put on and take off, so there is no stress. It is a specification unique to vintage, and you can feel the analog feeling in such places.The
bracelet is also not stretched like a Jubilee bracelet on a 4-digit Datejust.
I have taken pictures of the actual wear, so please check the condition of the Jubilee bracelet.
It's been a long time since I've worn a 4-digit Datejust, but the jubilee bracelet feels like it fits and sticks to my arm, and the lightness is outstanding. The Datejust 1601 has a luxurious feel because the fluted bezel shines brightly when light hits it. And it's not disgusting, so that's good.
It's hard to tell from the photo, but the combination of the fluted bezel and the matte black has a great atmosphere.
The appearance of colors changes depending on how the light hits and the angle. Depending on the angle, it looks pretty black, or it looks a little gray.
The combination of Jubilee bracelet, fluted bezel, and black dial is ◎
When I put it side by side with the IWC Ingenieur 3521 (34mm), the 36mm Datejust doesn't look much different than the 34mm Ingenieur 3521. The actual numbers are 2mm larger than the Datejust, but it looks a little tighter, so even people with narrow wrists can wear the watch without standing out.
