1986 Rolex Ladies Datejust 18K YG (Ref. 69278) Turquoise Stone Dial
The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and beloved Rolex watches ever made, ever since the Datejust was launched in 1945 it has remained a timeless classic and is instantly recognizable as an item of refined quality and functional design. This ladies' Datejust can be worn just as easily with formal evening attire as it can be with jeans and a tee-shirt. This piece would make an excellent start for a new vintage collector, or be a great addition to an expanding collection.
This turquoise stone dial Datejust is a positively electric example of the rare and exotic Rolex stone dials. The stunning bright aqua-blue coloration contrasts perfectly with the 18K solid yellow gold case that surrounds it. An intricately textured "bark" finish bezel and lack of dial markers accentuate the simple sophistication of the piece, making it appropriate to wear for nearly any occasion.
