Vintage Rolex 36mm Datejust, Blue 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.

The Datejust 16013 is a timeless blend of elegance and functionality. Its 36mm stainless steel case, crowned with an 18k yellow gold fluted bezel, exudes classic sophistication. The blue dial features sleek stick hour markers, each adorned with tritium lume plots that add a vintage touch to its charm. Powering the watch is a self-winding 3035 caliber movement, ensuring precise timekeeping. The seamlessly integrated stainless steel and 18k yellow gold Jubilee bracelet enhances both comfort and style, making it suitable for any occasion. This particular timepiece has been thoughtfully maintained, having undergone a recent service in 2023. It comes complete with the service box and papers from a 2013 service, offering a comprehensive package for those who appreciate a meticulously cared-for Rolex Datejust.

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.
