1979 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust
An automatic stainless steel and eighteen carat white gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust reference 16014 model. This example has a classic silver dial with a metallic finish with white gold markers. All original lume plots are in tact, and are not re-finished, and have toned into a lovely warm latté color.
The watch is powered by a Rolex, Swiss made, twenty seven jewel automatic calibre 3035 movement that powered the majority of all Rolex models since its launch, from the Datejust to the Submariner. These later models can be identified as they do not have the earlier, characteristic, 'pie pan' style dial. This model also comes with the more ergonomic 'Quick Set' date function, and the newly designed smaller profile case, all of which were introduced in the 1970's. However, this case still has the spring bar holes exposed from the side, which was eventually phased out around the early 2000's.
The watch is fitted to its original Rolex Jubilee stainless steel bracelet. The watch was made circa 1979 with serial number 585XXXX. The watch is in original condition, lightly polished, the hands have been replaced bearing a lighter lume color to the hour plots.
Case measurement: 36 mm
