The Datejust Thunderbird isn't just a classic Rolex dress watch; it also boasts the first timing bezel in the Rolex catalog. Also referred to as the Turn-o-Graph bezel, this feature was initially inspired by the amazing Thunderbird aerobatic team of the US Air Force. As the first official tool-watch in the Rolex catalog, this feature also predates other iconic sports watches, such as the Submariner, GMT Master, and Explorer II. To own a two-tone reference 16253 is to own a small piece of Rolex history. This particular reference boasts the intriguing Turn-o-Graph bezel as well as classic Datejust design in the form of a 36mm Oyster case and a five-piece link Jubilee bracelet secured by a Fliplock clasp. The Thunderbird Datejust price will vary based on condition, year released, and materials used.
