1988 Rolex Two-Tone Datejust (Ref. 16233) Champagne Dial W/ Box & Papers
The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and most beloved Rolex watches ever made, even though 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. The Datejust can be worn just as easily with a suit as it can be with jeans and a tee-shirt.
The Rolex Datejust ref. 16233 is a transitional reference as it features a tritium dial, but the movement is a Rolex cal. 3135 which possesses the "Quick-Set" date function which comes in handy when needing to quickly adjust the date.

CASE & BRACELET
The exceptional case appears to have been gently polished once in its past as the case retains crisp factory brushing and angles throughout, showing only light signs of use. The 18K yellow gold fluted bezel is also in crisp condition with almost no signs of use present. The original Rolex 62523 H18 two-tone Jubilee bracelet with 455B end pieces retains 22 links that show minimal stretch and will fit up to an 8 inch wrist.
DIAL & HANDS
The original sunburst champagne dial is flawless. The tritium lume plots show no patina and exhibit no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The yellow gold hands are later Rolex Service units with luminova lume and match the watches aesthetic perfectly. The metallic gold date wheel is original with open 6's and 9's.
The watch comes complete with its original Rolex box, Rolex guarantee paper, Rolex Calendar, and translation booklet. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time perfectly, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
