The Rolex Datejust Thunderbird came to market in the 1950s and acted as somewhat of a transitional model between the Datejust line and the brand's collection of sports watches. In fact, early models closely resembled the Submariner via luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands and a black 60-minute rotatable bezel. The Datejust Thunderbird, or Turn-o-Graph, has since taken on a design aesthetic that more closely resembles the Datejust line in the form of a Datejust dial topped with the model's logo and signature date display, a metal bezel, and the same movement and bracelet options. The pre-owned Rolex 16253 is the two-tone variation of the line that also features a five-piece link Jubilee bracelet, a champagne dial, an acrylic crystal, and a calibre 3035 perpetual movement.
