Rolex Datejust Birch Wood Dial & “Bark” Bezel C. 1978


An unusual and beautiful combination of details make this a rather rare vintage find. The watch is a ref. #16078 Datejust in 18k yellow gold, made circa 1978. This would have been among the first Datejusts offered by Rolex with a sapphire crystal. The dial is made of birch wood and is a softer-than-normal color than its more abundant counterparts. Additionally, the watch has a “bark” bezel, adding another layer of interest. Wood dials were not uncommon on vintage Day-Dates, however they are very scarce for Datejusts. 

 
The subtlety of the exotic dial, coupled with the absence of gemstones, result in a fine timepiece that is suitable for a lady or a gentleman and offers “organic chic” charm. The watch is accompanied by the original papers. 36mm
