3 Things to Know Before You Buy a Gold Rolex Datejust

In the latest episode of our Zoom series, we’re taking a closer look at the gold Rolex Datejust ref. 16238. Watch lovers often debate about their preference for vintage versus new watches, but what exactly qualifies as vintage? This is where the ref. 16238 really starts to get people talking. It was first produced in 1990, meaning it’s pretty modern considering the long history of Rolex and mechanical watches, but 1990 was already 30 years ago (as hard as that is for some of us to believe). So, perhaps the 16238 is actually already a vintage watch or at least on the verge of becoming one.
