【Description】

ロレックスを代表する自動巻き時計のデイトジャスト。その特徴的な外観から誰が見てもひと目でわかる時計として広く知られています。

日付が0時に瞬時に変わる「デイトジャスト機構」は「オイスターケース」と自動巻きの「パーペチュアル機構」とともにロレックスの3大発明とされ、このデイトジャストはそれらを全て備えた集大成とも言えるモデルです。

このRef.16234は1988年頃に登場し2005年まで生産された、現行デイトジャストのRef.116234の一つ前の世代に当たるモデル。

フルーテッドベゼル、ジュビリーブレスレット、バーインデックスという1960年代に確立されたデイトジャストの基本デザインを踏襲しています。

ステンレススティール(SS)とホワイトゴールド(WG)のコンビネーションデザインで、カッティングの美しいフルーテッドベゼルが18Kホワイトゴールド製と、さり気ないラグジュアリー感がある時計です。

ステンレススティールとゴールドのコンビネーションはロレックスでは「ロレゾール」という名で登録されており、そのルールに則るとこちらは「ホワイトロレゾール」という名称ですが、一般的には「コンビ」と言われます。

同じ世代でイエローゴールドのコンビのものはRef.16233というリファレンスナンバーが付いています。

前世代のモデル Ref.16014からは搭載ムーブメントが変わった点、防水性能が100mまでアップした点、風防がプラスチックからサファイアクリスタルに変わったという機能面のみの変更がありました。

風防がガラスになったことで気密性が向上し、普段遣いにはより適した時計と言えると思います。

搭載ムーブメントはCal.3135。発表されてから約30年を経た今でも、時計業界における最高のムーブメントの一つとして評価され続けています。

定期的なメンテナンスを行えば精度を永続的に保てる点、メンテナンス性もしやすいという点で非常に完成度の高いムーブメントです。

現行のサブマリーナ Ref.116610LNなどにも搭載されているということで、設計を変える必要の無い程に完成されていると言える機械です。

ブレスレットはジュビリーブレスレット 62510Hが付属します。クラスプコードからブレスレットは1991年製と分かりますので、発売当時のものがそのまま付いています。

20コマですので、腕周り18cmまでは装着可能です。(来店出来ない方や良く分からない方はご購入後、腕に付けた状態の写真を送って頂ければ、その状態を見てコマ調整をさせて頂きます。)

ブレスレットの伸びはあまり無く、年代を考えても少ない方だと思います。

裏蓋、ムーブメント、リファレンス、シリアルナンバーの写真はオーバーホール前に撮影したものです。

元箱と説明書、デイトジャストの冊子などが付属します。2006年に日本ロレックスにてオーバーホールを行った際の証明書、明細書も付属しています。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
