Yellow gold Day-Dates and Datejusts with Onyx dials are the single most requested watches in our store.And any time we finally get our hands on one, dozens of people beg us to sell it directly to them. But we’ll have none of that. These babies go straight into our drop so everyone gets a fair shot!This reference 16238 dates back to 1991 and is quite special as full gold Datejusts are much less common than Day-Dates. The nice thing about the 16238 is that it comes with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and a quickset date function. This watch is in excellent condition with a nice and thick 18k yellow-gold case with flawless Onyx stone dial. It comes on the beloved President bracelet with the elegant hidden Rolex clasp. Like the case, the bracelet is in wonderful condition and barely shows any wear or stretch.While you took the time to read this little essay, somebody else already paid for the watch... Gotta be quicker on the draw next time!

Introduction

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.Ref. 162xxThe Datejust 162xx references were introduced in the late 1980s. This fourth generation of Datejusts was the first to see the introduction of a sturdy and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. These models also incorporated the new caliber 3135 automatic movement.
