The Rolex Datejust Turn-o-Graph was the first timepiece in the brand's catalog to offer a rotating timing bezel. It didn't earn its impressive nickname "Thunderbird" until a pilot of the famous aerobatic team by the same name wore one on his wrist and was so impressed by its design that he requested them for the rest of his team. Rolex capitalized on their association with the team by naming the line the Datejust "Thunderbird" Turn-o-Graph. Besides its innovative bezel, the Turn-o-Graph looks and functions similar to the Datejust, which features a 36mm waterproof Oyster case, a Perpetual movement with self-winding technology, and an automatically changing date display on the dial. The used Rolex 16263 that you see here today is the two-tone variation of the line that will appeal to collectors of all budgets.
