My Datejust #1601 is from 1972. The bottom of my dial says "Swiss" Has this dial been replaced with a newer one or was it possible to have this dial in 1972? Thanks
I made a very good buy on the watch for considerably less than the listing price. It is beautiful and keeps typical Rolex perfect time.Arthur
I am visually impaired so I must magnify everything to read it. I have a closed circuit TV magnifier. I looked at the watch again under high magnification, it is not T Swiss T, but Swiss only. Even though the receipt is from Parry Jewelers, they send all their Rolex watches to Nesbit Jewelers in Seattle, WA. who are well know for their Rolex service. I spoke with them and they said they performed a full service and replace the plastic crystal, but did nothing withe dial. They said it appears to be original.
Arthur and all, I think I have solved the mystery. I have been advised by a long time Rolex collector that my TT Datejust with the dial that has "coffin" markers(sticks) at 6 and 9 o clock should say only SWISS at the bottom. I will still get a picture.From what I could see, the dial looks to be the correct..and an early dial.
I looks to me that it is a T Swiss T dial.
