Some days we don't even know but we are The Vintage Movement. We are just a few guys who love old watches. The Vintage Movement was launched in 2012 on the belief that there is a watch for everyone. Our goal is to find old watches a new home. We search for watches that we personally would buy ourselves. If it is cool, vintage and affordable we are on it! Let us help in your journey to find the perfect watch for your wrist.

  • 1967 Rolex Datejust Ref. 1600 Linen Sigma Dial Serial (154XXXX)

    This Rolex Datejust is off the charts. We have been so excited to be offering such a rare and amazing piece. This gorgeous stainless steel Rolex Datejust Ref. 1600. Circa. 1966-1967.

    The dial is original in cream grey linen textured finish with solid gold white hour markers (sigma dial). The Greek “Sigma” letters that sandwich the Swiss signature. Now, that might seem like a small and insignificant detail but in the world of vintage Rolex, there is no such thing as small or insignificant. In fact, the smaller and rarer, the better. With wider hour markers at 6 and 9 (doorstop) and calendar date at 3. Original steel baton hands compliment.

    The case is stainless steel with very sharp 14K white gold fluted bezel, acrylic crystal, steel screw down Rolex crown and screw down case back.

    Complimenting the case is its original stainless steel "oval link" Rolex Jubilee band with "Big Logo" folding buckle. The band will fit a 8 inch wrist or larger at full extension. The oval link Rolex band was designed to be looser than later bands but this one here is reasonably tight. The clasp is dated "1 67". The same age as the case. Running on a reliable cal. 1570 automatic movement. 

     

    This vintage Rolex, with its incredibly steel Oyster case, killer fluted bezel and incredibly clean cream grey linen dial proves that there is still, after all of those years, value in vintage Rolex. This is one of my favorite vintage watches and I know it’ll never disappoint you!
