Rolex Datejust 16233 “Jubilee”
In 1985, Rolex was about to celebrate its 80th anniversary. But wait, the Rolex Datejust was also about to turn 40 that year – Time for Rolex to commemorate this milestone with a special, anniversary dial design. That design is known today as the ”Jubilee” dial design. The Jubilee dial is characterized by a monogrammed repetitive ‘ROLEX’ pattern, which takes up the entirety of the dial, and basically gives you multiple watches in one – Let me explain.
These dials come in a variety of colors, but non are as gorgeous and cool as the blue Jubilee dial. You see, this blue dial is also iridescent, changing its color when the light hits it. Depending on where it’s viewed, it can be bold and eye-catching, and sometimes incredibly subtle. The Jubilee dial inside our 16233 two-tone Datejust will show you blue, lilac and purple tones, including an all blue and/or all black appearance when worn indoors or in low light conditions – At certain times you won’t even notice the monogrammed design is there, until it pops out at you when light hits it, very refreshing and there’s never a dull moment with this one! These Jubilee Dials featuring the stylized ROLEX pattern may not be for everyone, but if you’d like to own a piece of Rolex history or want something uniquely Rolex to add to your watch collection, then this particular example with it’s blue/lilac/purple toned dial is truly one of the best watches to get.
This Rolex Datejust 16233 “Jubilee” remains in excellent conditions with an extremely well conditioned, 18k yellow gold and stainless steel Jubilee bracelet, a very sharp 18k yellow gold, Fluted bezel and a strong stainless steel case. As always, this Datejust was fully serviced according the Rolex specs and will be delivered with our 24 month warranty.
