Palisade Jewelers is proud to offer this authentic ROLEX watch. This circa 1993 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch is finely crafted from 904L stainless steel and 18k yellow gold, with a sapphire crystal, champagne dial, index hour markers, and a 2.5X magnification cyclops date window at three o’clock. The classic 36mm case is highlighted by an 18k yellow gold fluted bezel and crown. This watch features a stainless steel and 18k yellow gold  jubilee bracelet, ref. 78363, with a stainless deployment clasp featuring the 5-point coronet. It is officially certified to be water resistant to 100m, so despite it’s beauty, it is a true sports watch. As indicated by the “T-Swiss” Tritrium provides the luminescence, and dates this watch before 1998.

Pre-owned and in excellent condition, with minor sign of wear. As is common with the gold jubilee bracelet, this one is somewhat stretched. This watch runs properly and accurately. This watch does not come with the original box or papers. We guarantee authenticity and will warranty this watch for one year. This watch is shipped in a Palisade Jewelers box.

About the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust

The 16233 may be the most “Rolex” of them all, as it brings together so many iconic achievements. First, it is an Oyster and Rolex invented the water resistant watch in 1926, naming it Oyster to evoke the superior seal. It features the self-winding perpetual movement Rolex invented in 1931, in which a mainspring winds the watch from the natural motion of the wearer.  The Datejust was introduced in 1945 and this watch has the proper jubilee bracelet which was created for the first Datejust. The Datejust with the flat back and cyclops date window appeared in 1957.

The Datejust is the highest selling model of any Rolex, although this model is only available on the second-hand market, so if you love it, we suggest you call us today — 201 871 0400.
