A Superb 18 Carat Gold and Stainless Steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust  - Black Dial - Ref.16013 - Sold New in 1990 - With Original Box and Paperwork

1945 saw the birth of the Datejust, the first self‑winding wrist chronometer to indicate the date in a window on the dial. A watch of great distinction, the Datejust was equipped with a Jubilee bracelet created especially for it and a fluted bezel, making it immediately recognisable as a Rolex. With its timeless aesthetics, functions and rich history, the Datejust is a watchmaking icon and one of the brand's most recognizable watches. 

What's on offer

This 1980s Rolex Datejust is in superb condition and is supplied with its original box and papers. The intense black dial has been well preserved over the years and remains blemish free. Furnished with applied gold baton markers and housing a quickset date wheel underneath a classic Rolex cyclops, with elegant stick hands and a central seconds hand, the dial design is quintessential and will simply never go out of style.

This particular watch boasts an 18k gold fluted bezel, as should be on the reference 16233. The timeless dial design, fluted gold bezel and gold and steel Jubilee bracelet are a classic and iconic combination. A stunning watch with an opulent finish which is supplied with its original box and papers. 

NB. This watch is in preowned condition so it does have slight signs of wear but considering it was first sold in 1990, it looks great so we have chosen not to have this watch polished. If you are looking for a birthyear Rolex from 1989, then this one is for you or your loved one!
