Rolex “The yellow gold Lapis Lazuli DateJust ref. 16018”. Status: sold

Very charming and rare example of 18k yellow gold Rolex DateJust ref. 16018, manufactured in 1983.

Reference 16018 represents the first DateJust fitted with a sapphire crystal.

The present example features the sought after and rare lapis lazuli hard stone dial. The Rolex gold crown and the gold graphics powerfully emerge from the deep cobalt blue color of the dial surface.

Each hard stone dial creation is unique in its appearance: the natural presence of calcite and pyrite deposits combined with the ultramarine pigment of this specimen, creates a captivating stardust effects.

The 18k yellow gold case is enhanced by the vibrant fluting bezel.  It still retains its full proportion with the hallmarks clearly visible on the lugs. The inner case back is correctly stamped 16000.

Definitely a great example of timeless luxury and elegance.
