ROLEX MENS DATEJUST 2 TONE ....no longer chic?
I want to highlight my Rolex 2 Tone DateJust with Diamond dial.
With the fashion for mens watches getting bigger.... the classic 36mm Rolex DateJust is small by modern standards. A new model of Rolex DateJust - model 116233 - has replaced the classic 16233 by growing slightly. Breitling has 42mm+ watches whilst Rolex has recently revamped the range making pieces bigger.... Patek - the Rolls Royce of the industry - also changed the classic Calatrava 3919 into a 2mm bigger piece (renumbered model - 5???).
In my opinion DINNER PLATE SIZE WATCHES are stupid. I hope this crazy fashion ends! In the meantime there are some BARGAINS for the savy shopper who defies the crazy trends!
I paid around US$2950- for this Classic DateJust 16233 with Factory Diamond dial! THAT IS CHEAP for a minter (80% + condition)! A Rolex Sports watch would have been much more.... I could have bought a Submariner NO-DATE 14060 for US$3000- (but it has no date!).... an Explorer II would be mid 3s.
I love the classic look of the DateJust.... it is a true "cads" watch! (Do a google for cad if you have no ideal what it means!)
The DateJust has long been the number 1 seller. Unfortunately the Sports Rolex range is fastly overtaking this. I hope we have a return to the classics! Like the classic Dress watch.... remember those days.... when people wanted a DRESS watch.... now they want a stupid SPORTS Watch!!!! (sorry for hating sports watches - I don't really - but I want to make my point!).
Please enjoy these photos!
