The Datejust Turn-o-Graph is a Rolex legend. Developed in the early 1950s, it was the first timepiece in the Rolex catalog to offer a rotating timing bezel, predating other more well-known Rolex tool watches such as the Submariner and GMT Master. The pre-owned Rolex 116261 is a newer-model Turn-o-Graph in the brand's patented Everose Rolesor finish. This striking two-tone finish combines 904L grade Oystersteel with lustrous rose gold. The black dial offers the perfect contrast to the Everose Rolesor finish and displays the time via rose gold indices and hands. The seconds hand is in red, reminding the wearer that the Datejust "Thunderbird" Turn-o-Graph is a sports watch at heart.

Watch's appearance exceeded expectations. Terrific value for price. However, it was returned because of damage in buckle (see cons). I was able to exchange product with incredible ease per 3 day satisfaction claim. Very happy with new watch which was received within 24hr!
Just a beautiful watch, always wanted the Thunderbird version of the Datejust so when it became available I made a trade of a Datejust II that I hardly wore.
This watch is in excellent, "barely worn" condition. The strap is out-of-the-box condition, and the design of the watch itself is beautiful. Definitely will be part of the long-term collection!
