16233 Blue Dégradé Diamonds
If there ever was a watch that screams Summer stunner it has to be this 16233 Datejust right here – A two-tone Datejust is already the perfect Summer watch, but add a gradient blue dial and some Rolex diamonds to the mix, and you can get the party started! Once you wrap this charmer around your wrist the magic immediately begins. Indoors the dial shows a navy blue tone, but once outside and especially in the sunlight, the blue completely lights up and continues to surprise you with its beauty – This, accompanied by the shimmering and sparkles from the ten diamond hour-markers, you will get to experience a two-tone Datejust like no other.
This beautiful Datejust is fitted with a rare and desirable blue lacquer ‘dégradé’ dial, often also referred to as a vignette dial. These dials show a very attractive colour gradient which smoothly transitions from a very dark navy blue, to a vibrant laser blue – This effect is striking to say the least, and the overall magnificent appearance of this dial is enhanced even more by the 10 vibrant, brilliant-cut Rolex factory diamonds, set in 18k yellow golden chatons. Each diamond is paired with perfectly aged, eggshell coloured Tritium plots, which together with the blue colors and the golden details provide a warm and fresh looking, yet distinctive neo-vintage Rolex. The stainless steel case on this 16233 remains in a very good condition with thick, sharp and evenly shaped lugs – The 18k yellow gold fluted bezel remains unpolished and the stainless steel and 18k yellow gold Jubilee with Folding Oysterclasp are the original to the watch, it shows some stretch, but still wears extremely well and very comfortable.
Just as you’re used to, this 16233 Blue Dégradé Datejust with gorgeous white Diamonds was fully serviced according the Rolex factory specs and will be delivered with our 24 month warranty including our service rapport.
