The dial of this Rolex Datejust is not really made from porcelain. It rather looks like porcelain because of the milky-white colour and highly-gloss finish of the surface.Porcelain dials are white-lacquered dials with a transparent layer (varnish) giving it an enamel appearance. Rolex produced porcelain dials for the Rolex Daytona 16520 and for some Datejust references. Since it's quite an expensive and extensive operation, Rolex discontinued the porcelain dials quickly. Hence, we mostly see this type of dials from '88 up to early '90s.The 162xx series Datejusts are our favourite every-day watches. They offer the classic looks of a 36 mm Datejust with all the modern conveniences, such as a sturdy sapphire crystal and a handy quickset-date function. We love this reference 16200 from 1989 for its no-nonsense looks. The stainless steel case, the smooth bezel and the Oyster bracelet give the watch a sporty appearance.
Rolex DatejustIn 1945 Rolex created the flagship Datejust to mark the company’s 40th anniversary. This model was the world’s first self-winding wristwatch with a date indication. With the Datejust, Rolex also introduced the iconic 5-piece jubilee bracelet, first in solid gold and later in bicolor and stainless steel. On the tenth anniversary of the Datejust in 1955, the magnifying ‘cyclops lens’ was introduced on the Datejust.
