Watch details

The “holy grail” of 1016s, this watch boasts a lengthy list of attractive details. This would have been among the very last plastic crystal sport watches produced by Rolex, with the serial number and original engraving on the case back dating the watch to 1991. Transitional models such as this make a strong statement in displaying the evolution of the model within your collection and are very desirable. The case of this example remains unpolished and the watch is accompanied by the original papers. Note the thick, strong font of the luminous 3, 6 and 9 on the original dial, a hallmark of the dials form this era. 36mm. Stock 37790
