Rolex Datejust 16238 'wood dial' 1988
The Rolex reference 16238 is a model from the Rolex Datejust collection, first introduced in the 1980s. The reference 16238 is made of high-quality 18-carat yellow gold and has a diameter of 36 mm. The watch is powered by the automatic Rolex caliber 3135, renowned for its reliability and accuracy.

This exquisite Datejust 16238 dates back to the year 1988 and features a dial that is rarely seen, known as the 'wood dial.' The dial is made of root wood, which provides a beautiful texture and a red/brown glow. The 18K yellow gold case and bezel are in stunning and sharp condition! The green factory sticker is also intact on the case back. To complete the watch, this Datejust is equipped with a gold President bracelet with a hidden clasp. The bracelet shows slight, acceptable stretch for its age. The combination of the gold case, gold bracelet, and wooden dial makes this watch not only a true collectible but also a remarkable eye-catcher. This vintage Day-Date comes with a 1-year warranty from 10 over 10.

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.
