Gold and steel diamond dial Rolex 16233 with box, papers and swing tag

The Rolex Datejust has remained such and iconic model that has stood the test of time, and here is a gents 18 carat yellow gold and steel diamond dial Rolex 16233 with box, papers and swing tag.

Made in 1991, this Rolex has had such little wear that it still retains its original sticker on the back of the watch which of course results in the band as well being in superb condition. With no flex in the gold and steel Jubilee band, combined with the ten diamonds set on the dial set on the 36mm Rolex Oyster case, this is one Rolex Datejust that will look so good during the day and well into the evening.

Fitted with the 31 jewelled Rolex automatic calibre 3135 that comes with our twelve month warranty, it also comes complete with its original papers and even its swing tag.

A true iconic Rolex watch that looks as good today ans when it was made.

A brief history on the Rolex 16233 compared to the Rolex 16013:
The Rolex Datejust reference 16233 is the upgraded version of the earlier Rolex Datejust reference 16013. The 16233 was now fitted with the scratch resistant sapphire crystal over the earlier models with acrylic crystal. All Rolex 16233 were in stainless steel and 18ct gold as opposed to earlier models which were in either stainless steel and 14ct gold or stainless steel and 18ct gold. Another major difference was the movement. The earlier Rolex 16013 models used the 27 jewelled Rolex calibre 3035 which was introduced in 1977 and had a power reserve of 42 Hours. The Rolex calibre 3135 which was introduced in 1988 now has 31 jewels, still a 42 hour power reserve and and Kif shock absorption. The Kif system is a Rolex invention that make the balance wheel oscillate consistently and accurately.
This is not to say that the earlier Rolex 16013 were not accurate, robust or durable as there are countless Rolex 16013’s the world over on someones wrist right now that, properly maintained will continue to be a highly accurate and reliable watch for many years to come.
