A lot of words have been typed both on HODINKEE and elsewhere about the humble two-tone luxury replica Rolex Datejust watches. Danny Milton has shared his love for this variant of Rolex’s most Rolex Rolex, both as a part of “80’s Week” in 2021 when he proclaimed “Two-Tone Isn’t Ugly,” and back in 2020 when he told “A Tale Of Two-Tone Rolex Datejusts.” I’m never one to gas up Danny too much but these are two HODINKEE articles that I come back to every time two-tone AAA US Rolex Datejust fake watches crosses my desk.
That is where I started with this reference 1601 from 1963, only to find there is so much more to this particular two-tone high quality Rolex Datejust replica watches than immediately comes to mind. Firstly, this one is so much not like all the other two-tone ref. 1601s you may have come across as it features my favorite simple Rolex handset – the alpha handset. We most often find this hour-and-minute-hand combo on 1950s and early 60s models like the Datejust. To me, it offers so much vintage charm and makes the perfect copy watches immediately recognizable to any real vintage enthusiasts you may come across.
Like many great vintage pieces, this Datejust has a story to tell on the caseback. The Oyster case is engraved indicating that the Swiss movements replica watches was awarded to an employee of Stroehmann Brothers Company, a Pennsylvania-based baked goods maker, “25 Years; Safety Award.” I am always attracted to engravings like these and I love that this one ties the 1:1 top super clone watches to the US, which is a nice little plus in my opinion.
