Watch details

For those fond of detail, this is a great classic piece to add to your wardrobe. This stainless steel Datejust boasts a unique black dial that has been impeccably preserved. All luminous dots are intact and the patina is beautifully matched across the dots and hands. Look closely to appreciate the best part- under magnification, the dial has a gentle texture and is flecked with tiny specks of red. Fun! 36mm This watch is accompanied by the original warranty (first sold on December 9, 1973). We are not selling this watch as unpolished. Stock 42044

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.
