Rolex Datejust ref 16014 SS/18K WG Tropical Linen Dial circa 1981


Rolex stainless steel Datejust ref# 16014 circa 1981 with an unexpectedly patina’d tropical linen textured dial. Featuring a 36mm diameter case in especially sharp condition with 18K white gold fluted bezel and acrylic crystal. Powered by self winding calibre 3035 movement with sweep seconds and quick set date.

The popular linen texture dial is more commonly associated with the early 1970’s non quick set ref 1601 models, but here we find this popular retro look in a more contemporary quick set date model. And unusual in our experience to see the warmly patina’d dial surface that has developed on this model. A great sporty look with the tropical dial complemented by a brown tone fine leather strap.

Recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

Your purchase arrives in one of our signature handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, ideal for travel and storage, a $55 value!
