We love Datejusts, a true icon that will celebrate its 80th anniversary quite soon, only the best watch in the world could have survived this long with almost the same design as the original one. Here we are proud to be able to offer an example from the 1980s in 18k gold, the reference 16018. A reference that was produced only for the decade before the switch to a more modern 16238 reference. A gold Datejust is always a special watch, but this one is even more special because of its crazy dial, the tropical patina on this is unique and with the little diamonds markers we have here a truly collectable Datejust.
Sapphire glass – 36mm diameter w/o crown – 20mm bracelet width.
