Watch details

More uncommon than its Rolex Day-Date counterparts, this 18k yellow gold Datejust boasts a rare original tiger's eye dial. Note the exceptional striations of the natural stone dial and how they capture reflections of light. Original silvered date wheel with open 6s. This piece embodies minimalist mid-century style and the rich, neutral color dial looks great with any palette. Suitable for a man or a woman. 36mm case diameter. Stock 37127

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.
