Rolex Thunderbird Datejust 16253

Several decades later, the cool and effortless style of the Thunderbird Turn-o-Graph Datejust is still highly sought after.  The Thunderbird Turn-o-graph was the first sports watch to be offered in a two-tone combination of stainless steel and 18 karat yellow gold, making it an instant collectors item.  The Turn-o-Graph also made watch history as the first official military watch after it became the timepiece of the U.S. Air Force's Thunderbird aerobatic team.  The addition of a rotatable timing bezel made this watch the ideal tool for the Thunderbirds thanks to its ability to make navigational calculations while in the air.  The reference that is offered here today features a 36mm waterproof Oyster case, a yellow gold bezel, and a two-tone Jubilee bracelet with gold center links and a Fliplock clasp.  A COSC certified self-winding Rolex movement lies within the case and is equipped with a Quickset function and 27 jewels for a smooth and reliable reading.
