Description

Cream Dial       -       The Rolex Datejust 16234 came in a wide range of dials most of them being standard colors with and without diamond setting. The example you are looking at has a more, I would say odd color, it is a lacquer finished dial with applied Roman Numerals, the most outstanding feature of this watch is the color. It is a cream dial which, initially had a off-white tone but over the years aged to a vivid cream - vanilla color. The Tritium dots are original and fully intact, matching with the original hands. A great day to day watch with that special twist.

THE DAY-DATE 1956

In 1956, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date made its debut. Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created specially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people.

LEADERSHIP

Rolex watches have long been associated with those who have, over time, guided the destiny of the world. No matter their vision, their domain of excellence, or their achievements, the one thing these exceptional men and women have in common is often their watch: the Day-Date.
