Rolex Datejust Steel and Gold 16233 Blue Dégradé Dial

Blue gradients with diamonds…

If you’re going to rock a Rolesor (Rolex terminology for two-tone) Datejust, then why not really add some cool bling by adding diamonds…it is nearly Christmas after all!
The watch houses a very rare and desirable ‘dégradé’ dial, which beautifully graduates from black to a deep blue colour in the centre. The dial is further enhanced with brilliant-cut diamond hour markers set in yellow gold chatons. This looks totally stunning! The case is really strong and the yellow gold fluted bezel has nice definition. The watch comes with its original USA papers and the unique serial numbered hangtag. The steel and gold Jubilee bracelet, reference 62523, is still tight and has 455b endlinks and clasp stamped ‘I 6’.
The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker. This watch turns 30 this year and would make a great gift for somebody’s 30th or just as a treat to try and get over 2020!
