16030 Datejust “Taupe Dial”
Okay, there are beautiful dials, and then there’s THIS dial – My god what a colour! In the photo’s a brownish taupe can be seen, in the daylight and/or sunlight, lighter taupe tones and grays can be seen, indoors this stunning dial will show you dark grey and golden taupe tones – this dial is just insane with a colour one can only hope to find. It is a 16030 Datejust we haven’t had the pleasure of offering up sale before, but this vintage Rolex in this particular condition with this magnificent dial is quite the rare find, and we’re happy to offer this beauty to you guys right now.
That already marvelous taupe dial is adorned with 18k white golden indices and hands, the indices on the 6 and 9 position are double the width of the remaining indices, and all show a wonderful, heavy brushed finish with polished facets on the top and bottom of each index. The dial itself has a soft sunburst finish, this finish is one of the reasons for the ever changing and beautiful colour on this super cool, vintage Rolex Datejust. This 16030 with quick-set date is worn on a 62510H solid Jubilee bracelet and remains in a good condition with a folding clasp with a clear and clean looking Rolex coronet. The stainless steel, Engine Turned bezel remains damage free, sharp and also in a strong condition. In short; one hell of a Datejust made in vintage Rolex dreams. They don’t make ‘m like this anymore – Don’t sleep!
