The Rolex Datejust is the classic watch of reference, and it personifies timeless style. Datejust, especially Datejust 41, is the classic watch archetype thanks to functions and aesthetics that never grow old. The Datejust was launched in 1945 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Rolex. Since its inception, the Datejust watches have seen minor upgrades while still staying true to its original design. This watch gained immense popularity in the 1970s after appearing on the wrist of several prominent actors.
Apart from that, this is the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial. What’s unique about this watch is that it has brought together all significant innovations that Rolex had contributed to the modern wristwatches.
Rolex recently introduced the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31, which is the first watch to feature a bezel set with 46 brilliant-cut diamonds, an aubergine, and a sunray-finish dial beautifully adorned with a diamond-set Roman VI. Some other iterations of this watch are fitted respectively with a white lacquer dial, dark grey, mint green dial & a fluted bezel in 18k white gold. The hands & index hour markers or Roman numerals on all these versions are in 18k white gold. The Datejust 41 is one of the most sought-after watches out there; get your hands on one only at Luxury Time NYC.
