Oyster Perpetual Datejust - Vintage Mens Gold & Steel Automatic Watch
€3,795.00

For sale is a Swiss Made Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust men's watch with reference number 16013, dating back to the 1980s. It features a 36mm Oystersteel case with solid 18k yellow gold bezel. The dial on this particular example is finished in an off-white, silver sunburst colour with gold and onyx indices. Lumed gold tone stick hands indicate the time, and a calendar window can be seen at the 3 o'clock position through the cyclop. Inside the watch sits a gorgeous Rolex 3035 movement, a legendary caliber and one of Rolex's most highly regarded mechanical movements. The crown is original, made from solid 18k yellow gold and decorated with the Rolex crown. Fitted to the watch comes an original two tone Rolex Oyster bracelet with 14k yellow gold center links. I believe the Rolex 16013 models originally came on Rolex Jubilee bracelets so it might not be entirely correct for this model, but it is genuine rolex and fits the case perfectly. The references for the bracelet and end links are 78363 and 458 respectively.

The example sold here has been worn throughout its life, but is still in good overall condition considering its age. The dial is looking really clean, with crisp text and undamaged finish. The hands have some slight discolouration due to age. You will find some scratches and wear marks on both the case and bracelet: the most notable damage can be found on the case back, where someone improperly attempted to open it and left some gauges in the process. The top right end link corner is bent inward slightly, and is missing a small part of the corner itself. The clasp has seen better days too, but is still perfectly useable. Please study the pictures in this listing well: they show the watch in the condition that it is in, with no digital enhancements to make it look better than it is. We are sure that you like honesty, and so do we. Functionally, the watch has been completely serviced and is working accurately. Overall this is a great example of an honest but certainly not pristine vintage Rolex, 'dans son jus' as the French would call it.

Please note that the bracelet will currently fit wrists with a maximum circumference of approximately 19cm. There are no spare bracelet links included, so these will have to be sourced online or at a dealership in order to extend the bracelet size past 19cm.

The watch comes without any paperwork or original box, but evidently we will provide a generic box to ship it to the buyer safe and sound. The item ships from Belgium and will be securely packaged and dispatched using the local postal service (BPost).
