The blue, the bold and the beautiful. This week we decide to come with a 'Datejust only' drop but of course we realize you won't take us serious if we don't bring you guys one absolute killerpiece. And that's why we're bringing you this stunning Rolex Datejust 16018 'Lapis Lazuli'.This piece dates back to the year 1989, runs on caliber 3035 and is made out of 18k yellow gold. The watch comes with an 18k yellow-gold Jubilee bracelet with an 18k yellow-gold fold-over clasp. In this period we always see the 5-digit reference Datejusts with plexi crystal but Rolex decided to carry out the gold pieces with a sapphire crystal already.Now it's time to have a talk for real; underneath the sapphire crystal we'll find the breath-taking 'Lapis Lazuli' dial. 90% of the price of 'Lapis Lazuli' Rolex watches are justified by the dial's condition and composition. Lapis dials contain pyrite. You will recognize pyrite by the golden sparkles in the blue dial. The better the pyrite is spread over the dial the more sought-after the dial and so the watch is. On this piece you will see that the pyrite is beautifully spread and the dial is in pristine condition, so without any cracks.Furthermore, the watch comes with its original box, papers and booklets. So if you would ask us, there is absolutely no reason to not buy this killer!
