1991 Rolex Datejust (Ref. 16220) Silver "Peach" Dial
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, making it one of the most versitile timepieces in the Rolex lineup.
From the exceptional unpolished case accompanied by its crisp stainless steel bezel, and tight jubilee bracelet, this 1996 Datejust ref. 16220 would make a great daily driver. The Rolex Datejust ref. 16220 is a transitional reference as it features a tritium dial, but features numerous upgrades such as a sapphire crystal and the Rolex Cal. 3135 movement which features a quick-set date function.

The thick and robust case appears to have been gently polished once in its past as the syymetcial lugs remain in near factory condition and show almost no signs of use. The engine-turned stainless steel is in excellent condition as well, showing only gentle signs of use. The original Rolex 78360 Oyster bracelet with 558B end pieces retains 12 links that show no stretch and will fit up to a 7 1/4 inch wrist.
The flawless silver dial has achieved a subtle yet stunning peach-colored patina and exhibit no flaws whatsoever. The tritium lume plots are a lovely eggshell coloration and show no degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original tritium hands match the dial nicely and display no degradation. The early white date wheel is original with open 6's and 9's.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time perfectly, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
