1978 Rolex Datejust 16013 - 18k/SS - Serviced

CHF 4'400.00

incl. tax, plus shipping

Description

This is a very early and still transitional 16013 Datejust. It comes in the 16013 case but is still using the existing stock of Tritium Pie Pan dials, Plexi crystals and the 1575 automatic movement. This can only be seen in the very first examples of the then new reference 16013. It lacks the comfort of a quick-set date but makes up for this with its rarety, which makes it quite saught after by collectors. This one has just been serviced and comes on a NOS Rolex lizard strap with Rolex steel buckle.
