Vintage Rolex 36mm Datejust, Silver Dial, Jubilee Bracelet, Ref. 16013

The Rolex Datejust was first introduced in 1945 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rolex brand. It was the world’s first self-winding wristwatch with a date display on the dial, and its timeless design has made it one of the most iconic and recognizable watches in the world. Over the years, the Datejust has been updated with new features and materials, but it has remained true to its original design and functionality.

This classic Rolex Datejust 16013 from circa 1987, is known for its timeless design and reliable performance. The 36mm stainless steel Oyster case with an acrylic crystal is complemented by an 18k yellow gold fluted bezel, adding a touch of elegance. The silver dial features gold stick hour markers and tritium lume plots, combining style with functionality. This watch is powered by Rolex’s self-winding 3035 caliber movement, which was recently serviced by Rolex in 2019, as indicated by the included papers and service card from the factory. Completing the look is the stainless steel and 18k yellow gold Jubilee bracelet, providing a comfortable and secure fit.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
