A yellow gold Datejust provides the perfect amount of balance between: humble, yet confident.
And that’s not all. Your humble gold Datejust is special in its own right. As most people that were in the market for a precious metal Rolex opted for the Day-Date option, significantly fewer gold Datejusts exist. Yet, the price of a gold Datejust is still lower today than your average Day-Date, making it a huge bang for your buck.
This 16018 specimen was produced in 1978, the very first year Rolex introduced a quickset date function on the Datejust line. That same year, gold Datejusts received a sapphire crystal too, while their steel and two-tone brethren would have to make due with plexiglass crystals for another decade.
This 16018 features an uncommon porcelain dial with 18k yellow gold baton indices and baton hands. The contrast between the shimmering white porcelain dial and the warm yellow gold tones gives the watch a wonderful understated elegance.
The 18k yellow gold case measures a classic 36 mm and a sturdy sapphire crystal ensures you don’t have to worry about scratches on the glass. The ref. 16018 is powered by the updated caliber 3035 with a handy quickset mechanism for the date function. The watch comes on an 18k yellow gold President bracelet with a concealed clasp.
