The Oyster Perpetual Datejust is the epitome of the classic Rolex watch. Created in 1945, the Datejust was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial – hence its name. With its timeless aesthetics, functions and rich history, the Datejust is a watchmaking icon and one of the brand’s most recognizable watches.
The Datejust’s enduring aesthetics make it instantly recognizable. The characteristic shape of the Oyster case, the 18 ct gold fluted bezel, the Cyclops lens over the date and the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet – specially made for the model – all contributed to making this watch a classic.
