The Datejust collection is arguably the most diverse collection since its birth in 1945, and the 1600 is no exception. Launched by Rolex in 1969, it offered a Datejust with a smooth bezel, contrary to what was familiar from sister references 1601 and 1603. This subtle difference created a sleek and dressy feel.
