1989 Rolex Datejust 16233 Tapestry With Box, Papers, Service and Extra Dial

Condition Analysis
The dial steels the light on this reference. The case is unpolished and in great condition, a for sure, well-preserved example. The watch comes with the original champagne dial and hands still package from the Rolex Service Center, original papers, two Rolex service certificates, both tags and a few booklets and paperwork. The dial is in amazing condition, the bracelet has minimal wear and the case is very thick and even.

Curator Thoughts
Hands down, the Rolex Datejust has become the most commonly known watch to everyone. The jubilee bracelet and fluted bezel work in harmony with a clean dial and simple date feature. The 16233 is also many people's sweet spot when it comes to Rolex. It is the most affordable Rolex model that can be had today with a sapphire crystal, quickset date, and a two-tone case and bracelet. The tapestry dial on this one gives it an extra bit of pop and class because of the dark black color. The tapestry dial is on of the coolest ones from the era. The way the pattern plays with the light is truly special. This specific example was taken care of so well, being served by Rolex twice and having all its original contents.
