*Unpolished* 1996 Rolex Datejust (Ref. 16234) Black Dial

The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and beloved Rolex watches ever made. This classic dress watch has been produced by the Swiss luxury watchmaker since 1945 and has remained a timeless classic that is instantly recognizable as an item of refined quality and functional design. The Datejust was designed for everyday wear, and its sleek and elegant design makes it one of the most universally loved watches for both men and women.

From the deep black dial accompanied by its crisp white gold bezel, tight Jubilee bracelet, and minty case, this 1996 Datejust ref. 16234 is the perfect example to be your next daily driver. The Rolex Datejust ref. 16234 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.
