The Rolex 16220 is a model from the iconic Datejust series, a lineage that represents one of the cornerstones of the Rolex portfolio. The Datejust itself has a storied history, having been introduced in 1945 to commemorate Rolex’s 40th anniversary. It was groundbreaking for being the first wristwatch to display the date through an aperture on the dial, alongside its timekeeping functions. This innovation solidified Rolex's reputation for combining functionality with luxury. The specific model number 16220 denotes a particular variation within the Datejust range that emerged in the late 1980s and continued production into the early 2000s
