Watch details

Classic… with a twist! This unique Oyster Perpetual Datejust with an OysterQuartz-style case and bracelet- a rarity in itself!- is further noted for being among the first Datejusts released with a sapphire crystal. The watch further boasts mint original vintage condition and a beautiful patina to augment the look. The style looks well on a lady or a gentleman and this style wears a hint larger than its 36mm case diameter would suggest. Stock 41842

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.
