1979 Rolex Datejust 16030 Blue

£3,800.00

The Watch

A blue dial Rolex alone is always a time to get excited, but a sharp reference 16030 with its original blue dial is worth shouting about! Even down to the bracelet the watch is sharp, it has to be one of the least stretched Jubilee bracelets I have seen! This watch also comes with its original box and booklets, spare links are provided too.

The datejust is a design that truly has stood the test of time and I think will continue to do so forever. It’s timeless and simple without being too unnoticeable, it has just that perfect balance. Plus… There is a little something about having that iconic crown on your wrist, whether we like to admit it or not, it feels damn good!

Points of Mention

This watch is sold with its original box and booklets, but no paperwork is provided. The watch comes with it's original spare links too. Overall the watch is in excellent condition, without even considering the age! The blue dial is starting to fade slighly and around the lume dots on the dial it is starting to fade more which is common for these blue dials.

Personal Note

If I was going to treat myself to a datejust it would be a blue dial without question, the overall design is incredible but the blue makes it stand out and being that little bit different to the rest of the datejust's out there. Also who doesn't love a 36mm that wears perfectly on the wrist? Comfort and you'll look incredible!
