used Rolex Thunderbird DateJust 16253

The Rolex Datejust Thunderbird pairs classic dress watch design with a rotatable 60-minute timing bezel. In addition to being the first model in the Rolex catalog to offer a timing bezel, the Datejust "Turn-o-Graph" was also an official military tool watch that was issued to the pilots of the US Air Force "Thunderbird" aerobatic team, earning it its bold nickname the Datejust "Thunderbird". The ref. 16253 that you see here is a two-tone option that displays the time on a classy silver dial topped with a yellow gold display, Tritium luminous plots, and an automatically changing date mechanism.
