Description

{Rolex Datejust Thunderbird 16253}\Retailed alongside the regular Oyster Perpetual Datejust, the Turn-O-Graph (also known as the Thunderbird) was released around 1955, and despite its Oyster Case underpinnings, looks like an entirely different animal than its siblings. This is primarily due to the addition of a large rotating bezel surrounding the dial, developed for travelers, scientifics, or profesionals requiring to control the passing of time in certain short periods, with the help of the rotating bezel.The addition of this rotating bezel is probably what kept sales of the Rolex Turn-O-Graph Thunderbird fairly low, but is ultimately what makes it such an interesting, unusual and collectable timepiece today. The 36mm stainless steel case is discrete yet distinct. The bracelet on this watch is an aftermarket piece. This watch does not come with box or papers.
