Rolex Datejust 16030 (1978) Rare Slate Dial
Admired for its subtle elegance and robust design, the Rolex Datejust synthesises all the essential qualities that Rolex is so highly praised for. This particular Datejust 16030 model from 1978 radiates qualities of sophistication and importance while engineered to be one of the most durable watches of its time. This is testament to this watch’s incredible condition. Baton steel markers are positioned around the circumference of a rich (and increasingly rare) slate dial, a contrasting noir to the dazzling golds and silvers of the typical Datejust. Presented on a stainless steel jubilee bracelet and measuring at 36mm, this Datejust fits comfortably on the wrist and pairs effortlessly with casual dress.
Importantly this example from 1974 features a desirable white gold bezel. Back in the '60s, stainless steel bezels could only be polished to a certain degree. Therefore Rolex gave the luxurious option of a white gold bezel for the 1601 Datejust- a sizeable expense at the time. This practice continued for several decades, incorporated into this spectacular reference. 40 years later, the shine on this Datejust is still a level above the rest, continually breathing new life into this vintage timepiece. The Datejust 16030 is an example of expert craftsmanship and timeless design which will forever be appreciated by even the most casual observer. This example has a serial no. of 63828xx and comes alongside a Rolex service pouch.
