ROLEX Datejust Ref. 16000 IBM - 1982
This is a true and nice example of cool sport Rolex. The Rolex Ref. 16000 is from 1982. Highlight is the stunning black and the historical engraving from the IT company IBM on the caseback. Case and bracelet are made out of stainless steel featuring a steel bezel. The watch is allover in beautiful condition. This piece is fitted with an original Rolex oyster bracelet also made out of stainless steel. The watch appears to be unpolished. The movement is a automatic movement, running well and keeping time. This is a true WRISTCLASSIC by an iconic brand. On the caseback is a crest and engraving celebrating an employee of IBM and their entering into the "Quarter Century Club." This looks to have been a tradition at the technology company, work for 25 years and you are gifted a Rolex. When the Rolex is as nice as this one, those 25 years are all the more worth it.
