Rolex Datejust Ref. 16233 B+P

Some combinations stand out above the rest. Take, for instance, the captivating blend of a bicolor Rolex Datejust featuring a sleek black dial.

The rich, glossy black dial is a stunning complement to the opulent gold accents found throughout the case, bracelet, hands, and indices. It’s a pairing that exudes elegance and refinement.
In the vibrant era of the eighties, everything was dialled up to eleven – gold, glitz, and glamour dominated the scene. And though the eighties may seem like a bygone era, their influence persists, experiencing a resurgence in both fashion and music. So, why not revel in the spirit of 1989 and celebrate like it’s still going strong?

This particular timepiece harks back to 1989, encapsulating the essence of that era. Furthermore, it comes complete with its original box and papers, adding to its allure and authenticity.”

The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic watch designs ever made. We try not to use the term “iconic” too liberally, but it is surely justified here. Launched back in 1945 as the Ref. 4467, the design has been only marginally updated every now and then. And it has looked fresh and current ever since.

When it comes to vintage, two generations of Datejust are particularly popular; the Ref. 16xx and the later five-digit references. The 16xx models were made from the fifties until  roughly 1978 and feature a beautifully dimensional pie-pan dial. Many of these came on folded jubilee bracelets and they did not yet feature a quickset date.

When the reference was updated to five digits around 1978, the pie-pan dial was replaced by a flat dial. The caliber was updated to now feature a quickset date. A decade later, in 1988, a new update saw the introduction of a sapphire crystal. For us, this is where vintage Datejust becomes modern Datejust.

Countless variations can be found. Different bezels, bracelets, dial colors, sizes and materials. The Datejust is one of the most beloved and versatile watches around. If you are looking for a one-watch-collection, that works equally well with shorts as it does with a three-piece suit, the Datejust is probably a pretty safe bet!
