About the Watch:
The Rolex Datejust stands as one of the most recognizable timepieces ever produced. With its classic, yet modern aesthetic, the difference between a vintage and a modern Datejust lies within the fine details, such as on this piece, the Two-Tone Reference 16233. With a gold, fluted bezel and its stainless steel case, the Ref. 16233 introduced a sapphire crystal for the first time in the Datejust line.
Rolex brands need no introduction. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, these visionary men set out to do what had not been successfully and reliably done before. Build a timepiece to be worn on the wrist, that was both highly reliable, functional, and durable, as well as stylish. Wilsdorf’s dream was to create a watch that could accompany its owner through all facets of life and withstand any environment. His innovative approach and high standards for quality re-shaped the watch industry as a whole. It has made the Rolex name synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance.
The Rolex Datejust Two-Tone Ref 16233 has a 36mm stainless steel case, with a gold fluted bezel and a gold crown, with a 18K gold and stainless-steel two-tone Jubilee bracelet. This timepiece features a sapphire crystal and has tritium lume plots with diamond hour markers, as well as a cyclops window over the 3 o’clock position for the date function. The Ref 16233 features the Calibre 3135 automatic movement with a 48-hour power reserve.
This Rolex Datejust Reference 16233 is in very good condition. The case, lugs, and bracelet show minimal wear, as visible in the photographs. This timepiece dates to the production year of 1991 and comes with the Rolex Jubilee Stainless Steel and 18K Gold bracelet.
