Rolex Datejust ref 16030 Tropical Dial circa 1981


Vintage Rolex Datejust ref 16030 serial # 7.1 million circa 1981. Featuring a 36mm diameter Oyster case with an engine turned steel bezel, acrylic crystal, and original matte silver “tropical” dial, highlighted by a dusting of “cinnamon” colored oxidation concentrated around the applied silver dial markers. This natural and unpredictable aging of the dial lends a distinctive, and attractive aged appearance to this acrylic crystal, quick set model, not usually associated with nice patina or tropical dials. We have fitted this model with a fawn colored finely stitched leather strap for a great look.

Powered by self winding caliber 3035 movement with sweep seconds and date. With complementary leather strap shown or your choice of strap from our large selection of straps. Great looking original patina’d dial lends a rich and unique character to this model. Recently fully serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

Your watch purchase will arrive in our signature fine leather WBAW? watch pouch, great for travel or storage. A $55 value!
