Hands on With Rolex Datejust II 116300

Posted on

Sticking with Datejust model, Hands on with the recently discontinued Rolex Datejust II 116300 stainless steel with smooth bezel and silver dial.  This watch was launched in 2009 and is 41mm in size wears a lot larger than the standard size gents 36mm Datejust. The watch is a mix of brushed steel and polished most of the head is polished and the oyster bracelet is brushed sides polished centre links with a folding Rolex clasp. The dial has baton hour markers pretty big with luminovo for night time luminosity . The blue dial version is much nicer version to the eye.

The watch comes on jubilee bracelet or oyster which I like them on both oyster more sporty look than dress.  The only thing I always thought was the crown was too small for the size of the watch in comparison to a Submariner with case size 40mm with a bigger crown.

Overall a nice watch but plain and bland good everyday watch that has just been fazed out at Basel 2017 to make way for the new Datejust 41mm not really sure the difference look very similar. But Datejusts always been a very popular model from Rolex that I not always bonded with.  Sports models tend to be the a better choice for residual value and more robust look.
