What a Difference
a Date Makes

Function of the Datejust II

Influenced by the pioneering Datejust, the date on the Datejust II is displayed in a window at 3 o’clock and changes instantaneously at midnight in a few thousandths of a second. The Cyclops lens on the crystal, invented by Rolex in 1953, magnifies the date for easy reading.

The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology. First introduced in the late 1930s, this particularly robust and comfortable metal bracelet with its broad, flat three-piece links remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster collection.

Twinlock Winding Crown


The screw-down winding crown and the case with screw-down back form the core of the Oyster. Created by Rolex in 1953, the Twinlock system ensures that the screw-down crown is water-resistant thanks to two sealed zones, one inside the tube of the crown, the other inside the winding crown itself. This system is used on all the watches in the Oyster collection that are guaranteed waterproof to 100 metres (330 feet).
