Rolex Datejust Ref. 16200

Here we have a true do-it-all watch. A modern Rolex Datejust Ref. 16200 from 2002.

This execution of the iconic Datejust is markedly sporty. The combination of a smooth bezel and Oyster bracelet give it a much more rugged aesthetic than your typical fluted bezel and Jubilee combo.

The black (!) dial is typical for the 162xx generation with its railroad minute track with small Roman numerals, discretely positioned just behind the applied hour markers. The stark black dial can be observed through a sapphire crystal, which is a safe choice for those who tend to put a scratch or two on their watch.

This sporty DJ comes on the original Oyster bracelet which is in great condition.

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!
