An automatic stainless steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust reference 16030 model with its original Rolex papers. This example has a classic silver dial with stick markers and baton hands. All around, the classic Datejust DNA. The writing and minute track are all printed in black, which pops cleanly off the dial. The dial is signed “T Swiss T” at the foot of the dial, below the six o’clock marker. All original Tritium lume plots are in tact as well as in the hands, and are not re-finished and have toned to a lean light vanilla colour.

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 was made circa 1987 with serial number R314XXXX. The watch is in original condition, lightly polished, but still a strong case. The watch comes on a Rolex Jubilee style bracelet, which does show some wear, but is not overly stretched.

To conclude, this is a really beautiful example of perhaps one of the most versatile watches produced by Rolex, and one with a dial that will work with any shirt or sleeve colour.

The watch is keeping excellent time, and comes with a Foundwell one year warranty against mechanical failure
