1989 Rolex Datejust (Ref. 16234) Grey "Chapter Ring" Dial W/ Box & Papers

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 true 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 and is always a great addition to an expanding collection.

From the unique and beautiful grey "chapter ring" minute track dial accompanied by its crisp white gold fluted bezel, and classic Jubilee bracelet, this full set 1989 Datejust ref. 16234 would make a great daily driver that's also worthy of collecting. The Rolex Datejust ref. 16234 is a transitional reference as it features a tritium lume dial, but features numerous upgrades such as a sapphire crystal and the Rolex Cal. 3135 movement which features a quick-set date function.
