Gold and steel Rolex Datejust 16233 with box and papers

The Rolex Datejust has remained such an iconic watch that has remained so popular throughout the decades, and here is a 18ct yellow gold and steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 reference 16233 that dates from 2001 and is in exceptional condition.

The Rolex Oyster watch case measures 36mm across plus the Rolex screw down crown and is the perfect and comfortable size to wear all the time, and is fitted with the traditional champagne coloured dial.

Fitted on the 18ct yellow gold and stainless steel Rolex Jubilee band which is in superb condition, the case back still retains its original sticker showing just how little the watch has been worn.

Inside it is powered by the 31 jewelled automatic Rolex calibre 3135 that keeps perfect time and has just been completely serviced by our Rolex trained watchmaker and comes with our two year warranty.

The gold and steel Rolex Datejust would have to be one of the most easily recognisable and stylish watches ever produced by Rolex, and this is one that looks as good today as when it was made.

Gold and steel Rolex Datejust 16233 with box and papers

This 18 carat yellow gold and stainless steel Rolex Datejust 36 dates from 2001 and comes with its full box and papers and has been recently serviced by our Rolex trained watchmaker.

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.
