We’re happy to offer you guys another great example of a Tapestry dial Datejust! These dials bring that extra bit of flair and uniqueness to the table which will make you smile every time you glance down at one of these beauties. Each vertical line which make up the Tapestry pattern is raised and also consist of very small horizontal lines, inside the initial vertical line itself! When viewed up close this finish is truly amazing! The combination of these vertical and small horizontal lines in this particular champagne dial color, ensures that the Tapestry pattern truly comes to life on the wrist. When the light hits the pattern it bends and plays with the color, making the dial seem silver at one point and a champagne tone the other.

This 1996 Datejust with a 16220 reference is in a truly excellent condition, with a very strong and sharp case and a near stretch free 78360 Oyster bracelet to match! By the way, this Oyster bracelet has the correct and somewhat rare 558B end-links which means this bracelet will also fit your 90’s GMT-Master watch. The beautiful Jubilee dial on this stunning Datejust is decorated with 18ct white gold stick indexes with a small facet at the top and bottom which is truly a beautiful detail. Also, at the outer edge of the dial, right against the Tritium dots, there is a thin chapter ring. Usually there is no chapter ring on a Datejust watch, the small lines which make up the 60 seconds indications mostly disappear under the flange. This means that the entire configuration of a chapter ring Tapestry dial, 78360/558B Oyster bracelet and the watch it’s entire wonderful and clean condition makes this a pretty rare Datejust!

The entire watch and its 3135 movement, with quick set date, have been serviced according to the Rolex standard and will be sold with a 12 month warranty.
