Rolex Datejust 16233

Regular price £0.00 £0.00 Sale

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.

The Datejust is one of the most classic Rolex designs, and there have been a few variations over the years. It was first released on the jubilee celebration in 1945 on the 40th anniversary of the Rolex corporation. This is how the Jubilee bracelet got its name. In later years, Datejusts have come on various bracelets, and on the second-hand market you'll find examples fitted on leather straps, but the Jubilee is the most historically correct bracelet for a Datejust. And it is super comfortable on your wrist. The Datejust we have here for sale comes on its original Jubilee bracelet, complete with 20 links in stainless steel and 18 carat yellow gold.

This Ref 16233 Datejust has a fluted 18 carat gold bezel and an impeccable gold dial. It doesn't get more "Rolex" than this! 

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.

This watch is made in 1995 and has been taken very well care of. As can be seen on the macro 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. The second, minute and hour hand show signs of ageing. 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 Datejust booklet and cleaning cloth. The box comes in the original Rolex outer carton and sleeve. 

This watch comes with a certificate of authenticity and one year warranty from Arlington Watches.
