Date

This Rolex Datejust reference 16220 is from 1991, this particular reference was introduced in 1989 a straight swap for the previous ref. 16030 which had served Rolex since the end of the 1970s.

It is fitted with a specific engine-turned bezel which looks very similar to the more common fluted type with the main difference between the two being the absence of precious metals and the decorative grooves etched around the circumference. This particular Bezel is no longer used by Rolex and this is in fact the last model to have used them.

The Bezel is not the only thing that this reference retired it was also the final Datejust to be made from 316L steel. After that, Rolex made the switch to the now standard 904L OysterSteel and also beefed up the lugs to give it more substance. This meant that with its sleeker silhouette and discontinued bezel the reference 16220 has all the ingredients that a retro collector is looking for paired with a lovely cream tone to its ageing dial.

All parts are original the inside carries the reliable 3135 calibre, crystal is plexiglass and dial and hands are in impeccable condition, watch was inspected by master watchmaker in 2020 and photos are of actual watch. If you need any extra information or photos please get in touch.
