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 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. The Pearlmaster bracelet is always fitted with a Crownclasp.
