Foundwell Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 16220


Please note: All sales final for this item.

Launched in 1945 to commemorate Rolex’s 40th anniversary, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust is a classic timepiece. This particular model has a beautiful black dial, silver “stick” markers, a white-printed Roman chapter ring, and white printing throughout. It features an engine-turned stainless steel bezel, and comes on its original Rolex Jubilee stainless steel bracelet. Made in 1997, it has a clean, easy-to-wear monochromatic look and is in excellent condition. The watch is powered by a Rolex, Swiss-made, thirty-one jewel automatic movement. It also comes with the ergonomic “Quick Set” date function, and the newly designed smaller profile case, all of which were introduced in the 1970s. All the original Tritium lume plots and hands are intact, and have aged to a light ivory color. These late 90s dials represent the last of the Tritium dials, which are increasingly sought after by collectors. It has a more modern case, which now has the lug holes covered and is known (unsurprisingly) as the “no holes” case. This was an improvement that Rolex made toward the end of the 90s, making this an early iteration of the style. This watch also has the spring bar holes exposed from the side, an element that was phased  out around the early 2000s.


Because this watch is a vintage, one-of-a-kind piece, all purchases are final sale and excluded from any promotions.
