Rolex Datejust: The Classic Watch of Reference

The epitome of the classic Rolex watch, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust was created in 1945 and is the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o'clock on the dial - hence its name.

With enduring aesthetics making it instantly recognisable - the characteristic shape of the Oyster case, the 18ct gold fluted bezel, the Cyclops lens over the date and the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet are all specifically made for the model and contribute to making this watch a classic.

With a choice of bezels - smooth, domed, fluted of set with diamonds - the Datejust can perfectly reflect the personality of its wearer. The emblematic fluted bezel is always crafted from 18ct yellow, white or Everose gold and can be partially or fully set with diamonds. These brilliant-cut diamonds are carefully selected by in-house experts from which Rolex's gem-setters then take over, setting them by hand to reveal their unique beauty.

Depending on the version, the Datejust is fitted with a Jubilee, Oyster or President bracelet. Supple and comfortable, the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet was specifically designed for the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust in 1945. The particularly robust Oyster bracelet has broad, flat three-piece links and remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster Perpetual collection. The prestigious President bracelet and its three semi-circular links is exclusively available on 18ct gold versions of the Datejust 31.

According to its size, the Datejust is equipped with calibre 2235 and 2236 (Datejust 31) or calibre 3235 (Datejust 36 and Datejust 41), which are self-winding mechanical movements entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Their architecture, manufacturing and innovative features make them exceptionally precise and reliable. Calibres 2235 and 3235 are new-generation movements that offer fundamental gains in terms or precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability.

Today, the Datejust is available in three sizes: 31, 36 and 41mm. Each version comes with a large selection of dials in different colours, finishes and materials. Among them, the Datejust 31 in 18ct yellow gold features a dial crafted from malachite, a natural ornamental stone chosen for its intense green tones and beautiful structure.
