What sets the Rolex 16253 apart from other models in the brand's portfolio? The bezel. Released in the early 1950s, the Datejust Turn-o-Graph - aka "Thunderbird" - pre-dates every Rolex professional series watch with a rotatable bezel, including the GMT Master and Submariner. This wristwatch is an absolute legend that boasts the elegant styling of a dress watch. It's for these reasons that it is so highly regarded by even the most experienced Rolex collectors. Ref. 16253 is a two-tone example of the famed Rolex Thunderbird, featuring a classic champagne Datejust dial, steel and gold finish, and a 5-piece link Jubilee bracelet. Buy it today in excellent secondhand condition.
