Style of the Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster
Available only in 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold, the Pearlmaster is always set with diamonds or other precious stones. The gracious shape of its 29 mm case, slightly larger than the classic 26 mm Lady-Datejust, is noble and distinguished. Its broad bezel glitters with gems of generous proportions, baguette- or brilliant-cut and sometimes in individual settings.
What a Difference
A Date Makes
Function of the Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster
In the earliest Datejust models, the date would begin to change hours before its midnight rendezvous. In 1955, the date-change mechanism was adapted to operate instantaneously and the date aperture was enhanced with a Cyclops lens that magnifies the date by two and a half times for easy reading.
Spirit of the Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster
The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first wristwatch to display the date through an aperture on the dial. Its unique magnifying Cyclops eye, added several years later, became recognised as a Rolex standard. Admired for its classic design, the Datejust has become an iconic symbol of style.
Rolex uses only the finest rubies, sapphires and emeralds to adorn its watches, and employs exceptionally demanding selection criteria. Each stone is meticulously examined by the in-house gemmologists for quality and authenticity.
Since these coloured gemstones form naturally in the earth in a varied palette of colours, they are sorted by hand, stone by stone, to ensure that all the gems on a given watch are of the same hue. At Rolex, time and precision are ingredients of beauty.
Both sensual and sophisticated, this metal bracelet with rounded five-piece links was created in 1992 for the launch of the Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster model.
Today it is also available on the Special Edition versions of the Day-Date and Datejust models. The Pearlmaster bracelet is always fitted with a concealed Crownclasp.
18 ct Gold
By operating its own exclusive foundry, Rolex has the unrivalled ability to cast the highest quality 18 ct gold alloys. According to the proportion of silver, copper, platinum or palladium added, different types of 18 ct gold are obtained: yellow, pink or white.
They are made with only the purest metals and meticulously inspected in an in-house laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment, before the gold is formed and shaped with same painstaking attention to quality. Rolex's commitment to excellence begins at the source.
Calibre 2235 is a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 2235 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.
Certified Swiss Chronometer
The four simple words Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified on a Rolex watch dial mean that the very movement inside the timepiece has endured 15 days and nights of testing by COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres – Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), an independent not-for-profit association. To receive COSC certification as a Swiss chronometer, a watch must demonstrate extreme precision in a variety of positions and temperatures. Rolex is unique in the industry: this is the standard level of quality required of every Rolex wristwatch movement.
