Onyx on Oyster       -here's a stunning Rolex Datejust 16238 from 1995 in incredibly well preserved and close to new condition. This watch for us has two major highlights apart from the crazy condition, the first one is the absolute impeccable Rivit Oyster bracelet which is still preserved in full length. The watch looks so much better on Oyster. The second one is the flawless and original Onyx dial. There are rarer and more expensive Stone dials out there but the Onyx is one of the best looking dials on a gold Oyster. Again, the combination with the Oyster bracelet is a winner, this watch looks so good on the wrist.

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.


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.
