The Rolex Thunderbird Datejust first came to market in 1945, introducing the world to Rolex's first rotatable bezel and also, interestingly, pre-dating the brand's more notable sports watches with rotatable bezels, such as the Submariner and GMT Master. As the brand's first official tool watch, the Thunderbird Datejust is one of the most important additions to the brand's catalog as well as one of the most underrated timepieces. The bezel is also known by avid Rolex collectors as the "Turn-o-Graph" and is featured here on this preowned Rolex 116261 in a handsome rose gold finish. The Oyster case and Jubilee bracelet pair rose gold with 904L Oystersteel, creating what Rolex often refers to as "Everose Rolesor" and creating a highly coveted and valuable dress reference.

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!
