Watch details

Sodalite is a natural stone with a textured blue hue lighter than lapis lazuli. His denim-like color looks well with any palette and is both distinctive and uncommon. This classic Datejust remains in excellent condition with all original components, including the impeccably-preserved Jubilee bracelet (#62510 H). Suitable for a lady or a gentleman, this watch will make a great addition to your vintage collection, despite not being the oldest watch in your lineup, as Rolex no longer offers this dial in its current catalog. 36mm We are not selling this watch as unpolished and it is not accompanied by any accessories.

THE FIRST DATEJUST 1945

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.
