Cream Dial - The Rolex Datejust 16234 came in a wide range of dials most of them being standard colors with and without diamond setting. The example you are looking at has a more, I would say odd color, it is a lacquer finished dial with applied Roman Numerals, the most outstanding feature of this watch is the color. It is a cream dial which, initially had a off-white tone but over the years aged to a vivid cream - vanilla color. The Tritium dots are original and fully intact, matching with the original hands. A great day to day watch with that special twist.
