Vintage Rolex 1601 with Coat of Arms of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, white gold bezel

I have always love the 1601 and I have one in Rose gold bezel and steel and another in yellow gold bezel and steel. This is a white gold bezel Rolex with the rare dial made for Saudi Arabia (with the Coat of Arms of kingdom of Saudi Arabia : Palm tree and two swords logo).

The Saudi Arabian national emblem (Arabic: شعار السعودية‎‎) was adopted in 1950. According to the Saudi Basic Law, it consists of two crossed swords with a palm tree in the space above and between the blades.

The two swords represent the Kingdom of Hejaz and the Sultanate of Najd and its dependencies, which were united under Ibn Saud in 1926.[3] The palm tree represents the Kingdom's assets which are defined as its people, heritage, history, and resources natural and non-natural. Thus, the palm is shown to be guarded by the two swords, which represent the force to be used in defence of the nation. As a former history and political science student, these details often fascinate me. As you can see, the Rolex wording and fonds sizes are also smaller. There are a few versions of the dials.
