Rolex is arguably the world's strongest brand, across all categories. It is immediately recognised and associated with success and luxury – a status symbol for the rich and famous. While this may not be the reason to own a Rolex, it does mean that the second-hand value of a well-preserved Rolex is unbeatable. We have seen many models appreciate in value over the years.
And Rolex make fantastic watches! This Datejust we have for sale is a COSC certified watch, which means that it lives up to the standard required to have the Chronometer marking on the dial. It winds automatically it keeps time very, very well. See the image of the timegrapher reading!
The Datejust is one of the most classic Rolex designs, and there have been a few variations over the years.The Datejust we have here for sale comes on its original Oyster bracelet with 13 links in stainless steel. It is a sportier look than the Jubilee bracelet that you can see on these watches sometimes.
This Ref 16220 Datejust has an engine turned white gold bezel and a perfect white dial with beautifully applied roman numerals.
The magnifying cyclops date window is an instantly recognisable Rolex signum. In contrast to the date complication on many other watches, where they have tried to hide the date, the Datejust proudly magnifies it. Perhaps because the Datejust was the first watch with a date that automatically switched over at midnight. The cyclops is made out of the same scratch resistant sapphire as the rest of the crystal.
The serial number of this watch tells us it was manufactured in the period 2003-2005. It has been taken very well care of since then. As can be seen on the images, this watch has not been over polished, if even polished at all. Tiny hair string scratches from use but nothing that's visible without close inspection.
This is a splendid watch, real pleasure to wear. Goes well with a suit or as a rock star statement piece with jeans and T-shirt.
This watch comes in an original Rolex presentation box with the Rolex service calendar. The box comes in the original Rolex outer carton.
This watch comes with a certificate of authenticity and one year warranty from Arlington Watches.
