The present Rolex Datejust is a reference 16 013, manufactured in stainless steel and yellow gold. The three-piece case with screw down back and gold crown has an 18k yellow-gold faceted bezel and a crystal with cyclops lens. It remains in great condition, as does the Jubilee bracelet in steel with inner links in gold. The champagne dial with applied gold baton indexes, outer minutes divisions, date aperture and luminous dots is incredibly fresh looking and well preserved. At six o’clock the dial is printed an uncommon signature: the “Halliburton” logo. Halliburton is a multinational corporation headquartered in Houston, United States of America. It operates in over 120 countries as a group specialized in public works and in the exploitation of oil fields. It also manages a private military company with interventions in conflicts in various parts of the world, of which Dick Cheney was the former CEO during the period in which he was vice president of the United States.
