By Paul Altieri
The first Rolex to feature a rotatable bezel was the Datejust Thunderbird, which came to market in 1953. That's right, it hit the market before other more well-known Rolex tool watches, such as the Submariner and GMT Master. Holding such an important place in Rolex history, the Datejust Thunderbird, aka "Turn-o-Graph," has since become a highly prized collector's item. During its production run, Rolex released several variations, including the steel and gold ref. 16263 for sale here today. It features several Datejust amenities that avid collectors desire, including a self-winding Perpetual movement, waterproof Oyster case, jump date mechanism on the dial, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
