First launched in 1945, the Rolex Datejust’s functionality and classic style make it one of the world’s most recognised watches. The Datejust was the first wristwatch to feature the automatic changing date function, an innovation introduced by Rolex. Displayed clearly beneath the distinctive magnifying Cyclops lens, the date, which changes instantaneously, appears to ‘pop’ out as you glance at the face of the watch.
The Datejust is classically associated with the elegant fluted bezel, although smooth and gem-set bezel options are available. Originally, the fluted bezel helped to screw the bezel onto the watch to ensure waterproofness. Now, its function is primarily aesthetic, and it has become an unmistakable mark of distinction.
The Datejust looks especially impressive with a supple 5-piece Jubilee bracelet, especially with the Rolesor combination of steel and gold. The Datejust is available in 31, 34, 36, and 41mm diameter. The supremely legible dials are manufactured mostly by hand, and come available in a range of colours and designs.
Besides the Datejust’s timeless elegance and design, these watches also boast the functionality and reliability that is fundamental to all Rolex watches. Recent models are waterproof to 100m. They come fitted with the much-admired self-winding 3235 calibre movement, offering a 70-hour power reserve.
Rolex Lady Datejust
In 1957, the Lady Datejust was launched. It adapts the elegant heritage of the original Datejust, with a design and size to suit the wearer. The functionality of the Rolex Datejust is maintained in the Lady Datejust with a superbly accurate chronometer. The Lady-Datejust comes available in 28mm diameter to suit a smaller wrist.
