This specific 1979 Datejust Ref. 16030 is classic, clean, and stylish. The sought after white Buckley dial has a unique look. The watch is accompanied by its original engine turned bezel and jubilee bracelet which would make a great daily driver that is suitable for almost any setting, casual to formal. This 1979 Rolex DateJust ref. 16030 is a somewhat traditional piece due to the fact that the crystal is acrylic yet the movement is a Rolex cal. 3035 which possesses the "Quick Set" date function which comes in handy when needing to quickly adjust the date!
