Dimepiece Rolex Datejust

Regular price $12,000 USD

An automatic stainless steel and eighteen carat gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust reference 16233 model. This example has a very special, and very rare, white 'shantung' dial. Looking closely, this dial has striations running throughout it, along with applied solid eighteen gold Roman numerals with black enamel center filling. It may look like a normal glossy Roman numeral dial, but it is not with these subtle, textured lines running through it. These dials were all made by Rolex around the end of the 1990s and into the early 2000s. This has been confirmed by Rolex in New York. The dial is correct, along with this black enamel filled hand set. These watches came with and without the applied Tritium luminous material. The dial is no longer in production, and is not available to order anymore, making this very rare and collectible!

Not only is the watch presented in this condition, it is also a "full set". It has the plastic Rolex hang tag, leather wallet and most importantly, punched paperwork from Rolex. These watches are exceptionally hard to find, let alone in this condition and complete. If the desire is there for something subtle, but beautiful, this watch very much ticks the boxes. The dial detail does not become immediately apparent. Only upon closer inspection does the beautiful detail reveal itself. Very rare and quite special!
