Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Ref. 16030 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1985

A stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with quick date change, Rolex Jubilee bracelet, presentation cases, booklets and instructions

Rolex introduced the Ref.16030 Datejust in 1977 and the model was manufactured with the automatically wound Rolex calibre 3035 movement until 1988. One of Rolex’s all time classics,  this is an especially handsome example of the model with a superb black dial. Cased in stainless steel, the watch has a typically robust Rolex Oyster case with screw-down crown and case back and a finely milled and fluted steel bezel. The watch is fitted with its original Rolex Jubilee link bracelet with adjustable folding clasp. The automatic incorporates a fast date change facility, allowing quick and easy adjustment of the date and there is also a hack – when the crown is pulled out to adjust the hands, the seconds hand will stop, thereby allowing easy synchronisation to a time signal.

This watch is accompanied by a Rolex presentation case, card outer box, Rolex Datejust instructions, Rolex Oyster booklet, plastic Rolex folder containing a Rolex calendar card for 1986 – 1987 and a chronometer booklet. Please note that the original certificate is not present.

As part of this watch’s service and overhaul it has been pressure tested for water resistance for depths up to 100 metres.
