The Datejust Turn-o-Graph was famously the first serially-produced timepiece in the Rolex catalog to offer a rotatable timing bezel. The line was issued to the pilots of the US Air Force Thunderbird aerobatic team, earning it the nickname the Rolex Thunderbird and making it an official military watch. The ref. 16253 that is listed for sale here today is a handsome two-tone example of the line that features a yellow gold 60-minute timing bezel, a steel and gold case and bracelet, and a classy white dial topped with yellow gold Roman hour markers and hands. As a traditional Datejust timepiece, the ref. 16253 is also waterproof up to 100 meters and runs on a chronometer-rated calibre 3035 Perpetual movement.
