Overall this watch is in very good condition. The case shows some light wear with signs of light polish in the past but remains sharp. The ridges on the fluted bezel show some minor roundness which is often seen as part of the aging process. The dial has shows aging and has developed an even patina. Originally silver, it has patina’d into a rich champagne color over time. Depending on the light angle, one can still enjoy the silvery color. The dial has no lume to worry about. This DJ is fitted with the rare and coveted dauphine hands. The handset shows some light aging but is in good condition. The end piece of the bracelet is loose on both ends. The bracelet itself is original and is in good condition but is lightly stretched. 

This 1601 DJ is a piece consigned to us by a collector. It was purchased by the owner from a major Japanese dealer in August 2018. The movement was serviced by the dealer in 2017 and currently running well at +31.1 sec/day.
