Rolex Datejust 16220 Tapestry Patina Engine Turned 1993 Cal 3135 COSC JubileeRolex
For auction is a 1993 Rolex Datejust 16220 Tapestry dial caliber 3135 gray dial tritium markers with dial patina on 62510H Jubilee bracelet. A great 1990's Datejust with a rare dial: tapestry in gray. But a has a patina/color change beginning to develop and gives it a unique look. The Datejust is the most imitated watch of all time and for good reason, it might be the perfect timepiece. My own watchmaker father wore a two tone Datejust for 17 years, its just so incredibly easy and rewarding to wear. 1990s Datejusts are probably the best value entry into the Rolex brand and grabbing special dials still offers up value. A great watch.
