VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Rolex Datejust ref 16018 18K YG “Snow White” circa 1984

SOLD

An exceptional condition example Rolex 18K gold Datejust ref# 16018 serial# 8.7 million circa 1984. Featuring a 36mm diameter case with fluted bezel and sapphire crystal. With stunning and rare original snow white dial with beautifully aged and fully intact luminous plots. With applied gold indexes and gilt baton hands. Powered by self winding caliber 3035 movement with quick set date and sweep seconds. Fully serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Offered with your choice of sporty leather or exotic skin strap.

This is a great looking solid gold full size man’s model of the era which offers a very sporty and upscale look for a man or oversized for a woman. The watch is in exceptional condition in all respects, with especially thick lugs, and as stated features a rare and mint condition snow white original dial. We have fitted this watch with a non cyclops crystal to further emphasize the beauty of the watch and dial without the distraction of the cyclops bubble.

We rarely can meet requests for white dials for gold or steel vintage Rolex Datejust or Day Date models, as most dials were either champagne or silver satin, but rarely white. We are obviously proud of this beauty and invite you to consider this example for your self, or a loved one!

NOTE: the 16018 gold Datejust is a bit of an anomaly among Datejusts of the era, as the steel and 2 tone models of this era also used the 3000 series quick set movement, but came fitted with acrylic crystals. Only the gold Datejust, like the Day Date, and the 16800 Submariner of the early 80’s were fitted with sapphire crystals.

Your watch purchase will arrive in our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $45 value! See photo.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
