1981 Rolex Two-Tone Datejust (Ref. 16013) Silver Dial
The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and beloved Rolex watches ever made. Launched in 1945, it has remained a timeless classic, instantly recognizable as an item of advanced quality and functional design. The Datejust’s exemplary style makes it an extremely versatile choice, worn just as easily with a suit as with jeans and a t-shirt. The Datejust would make a wonderful starting point for a new vintage collector
One of the largest evolutions for the Rolex Datejust model lineup was at the end of the 1970s with the introduction of the first "flat dial" Datejust. The movement was vastly upgraded to the Rolex cal. 3035 quick-set movement. These Datejust variations are often referred to as "transitional" as they still feature the more classic acrylic crystals and tritium lume whilst housing many advancements.

The exceptional case shows honest signs of use and exhibits no signs of being previously polished but does have a subtle sleeve polish from wear, the lugs retain factory dimensions and crisp angles throughout. The 14K yellow gold fluted bezel is also very crisp and features honest signs of light use. The original Rolex 62523H.14 two-tone Jubilee bracelet with 455 end pieces retains 21 links that show minimal stretch and will fit up to a 7 3/4-inch wrist.
The original silver sunburst dial features black and gold markers that create an excellent contrast and the dial itself is in perfect condition. The large tritium lume plots exhibit no degradation when inspected under UV light and have achieved a beautiful golden-yellow patina. The original tritium yellow gold hands match the dial perfectly with no degradation present under UV light inspection. The metallic date wheel is original with "open" 6's and 9's.
None. The watch is keeping time perfectly, backed by 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
