The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch is one of the most famous watches when it comes to Rolex and you can surely see why when you encounter it the first time. But first, let’s talk a little about its history. The first Datejust was actually launched in 1945 and it is known to be the first wristwatch that featured a date function; at the time the watch was a bit thicker than others because of that element. It also featured the fluted bezel that is so well known today.
Being the bestselling Rolex model on the market, when you take a look at it, it’s pretty obvious why people love it: the watch has a great medium size with a gentleman model that comes in 36 mm. The watch suffered a few modifications over the years that made it even better; for example, the date change mechanism was recreated and adapted in 1955 to operate instantaneously. In 1970 the watch was again a bit altered because it needed to adapt to modern times. Soon, the collection created for ladies appeared and the watch has remained a constant popular hit.
The Rolex model is automated by Rolex Caliber 2235 movement along with 31 rubies. The caliber along with its unique design is thicker than the other mechanisms in the watch. It measures 5.95mm in height. Despite its design, the movement is still one of the most accurate in the world which helped it pass the COSC certification tests.
You will certainly fall in love with this watch at first glance, and even if you wouldn’t know it’s a Rolex, the watch is imposing and manages to make a clear impression with its elegant and well-crafted design.
