Since the launch of the Rolex Datejust in 1945, the date only model is one of the brand’s most recognizable winning card. The epitome of a classic wristwatch, the Datejust model boasts a wide array of innovative dial variations. Among the various iterations, preserved in excellent overall condition, the present reference 16 014 is a rare example of a steel watch. The dial of this timepiece is special: often ordered upon request by organizations, it presents a silvered background and a logo at six o’clock: the 100 Club Logo. The 100 Club is a 32,000-member non-profit organization that began in 1953, which provides financial support to the dependents of law enforcement officers and firefighters who are killed or seriously injured in the line of duty in 32 counties surrounding Houston. This exceptional watch is definitely the uptime goal for a collector considering the scarcity of specimens made and the fact that these watches were never available to the public
