The Datejust has not been altered in its appearance much since it’s coming out in 1945. Small adjustments through the years, but no huge change, that is what makes it classic.
The ref 162XX started about 1988, taking over from 160XX. There was a little adjustment on the movement, but no noteworthy changes. The 16233 you see here is razor-sharp, the Oyster case has still its edges, bracelet in very good condition. But what makes it irresistible is the black tapestry dial, it gives the watch some flair!
Gold and steel, in perfect condition, 36mm, can it get any better?
