Rolex Datejust 16014 - 1978
The Rolex Datejust 16014 is the successor to the Datejust 1601. The Rolex Datejust 16014 was produced from the 1970s into the 1980s. The upgraded 3035 movement with quick-set date function that was introduced in the 1970s makes this watch even more user-friendly because the date can be adjusted manually. The Datejust remains the quintessential watch with clean lines, versatile styling, impeccable Swiss craftsmanship, suitable for everyday life and any occasion.

This 1978 Rolex is not only a true vintage classic, but also features something that makes our hearts beat extremely fast. And that is surely the condition of the watch. Take a look at the thick case combined with the razor-sharp lugs and the 18K white gold fluted bezel, which creates a eye-catching sparkle. We should not forget the matching jubilee bracelet, which is extremely tight and shows no stretch for its age! The tritium on the original dial and hands show a beautiful pumpkin patina that has developed over the years. In addition, the hour markers and hands show some oxidation. We have consciously decided to keep everything in its original condition. The 3035 movement was recently provided with a full service by our watchmaker.

Rolex Datejust
In the year 1945 the first Datejust was introduced under the 4467-reference, honouring the 40-year existence of Rolex. This was the first self-winding watch that featured both a watertight case, as well as a date-window that automatically changed the date after midnight. The Datejust was equipped with a serrated bezel and the famous Jubilee bracelet, which was designed especially for the Datejust. The date was indicated on the 3-hours position. 10 years later, in 1955, the datewindow was equipped with a cyclops lens that magnified the date up to two and a half times.

The most iconic models by Rolex were made to be used as toolwatches. The Datejust, however, did not serve a specific purpose. This model simply needed to be a classic, reliable, daily watch, suitable for every occasion in everyday life.
