Watch details

Modern enough to wear regularly, yet boasting a handsome list of details to make this piece relevant to the collector. This special Datejust is noted for its (now discontinued) “tapestry” dial with white printing, rich patina on all of the luminous and of course, the Tiffany & Co. signature. This watch is appropriate for ladies and gentlemen and for casual or more formal attire, as its monochromatic nature will look well with all of your favorite outfits. 36mm. Stock 42497

The year 1945 saw the birth of the Datejust, the first self‑winding wrist chronometer to indicate the date in a window on the dial. A watch of great distinction, the Datejust was equipped with a Jubilee bracelet created specially for it and a fluted bezel, making it immediately recognisable as a Rolex. It is the pillar of the Oyster collection. Initially for men, it became available in various models for women in the course of the following decade.
