Rolex Datejust (Ref 116233)
If the words classic and aesthetic define your tastes then the Rolex Datejust would be the ideal watch for you. Launched in 1945, this classic timepiece was the first wristwatch to be produced with an automatic date changing function. This 36mm steel and yellow gold stellar watch comes in a champagne dial and hour markers that have been fashioned from 18 carat gold. A part of the Oyster Perpetual line, the Datejust displays the date and is adorned with an Oyster case. The exceptional part about the oyster case is that it was the world’s first waterproof case with a patented system of screwing down the bezel, caseback and winding crown against the monobloc middle case, which is why the Datejust comes with a water resistance of 330 feet. Even the winding crown comes with a Twinlock double waterproof system.
The Oyster Bracelet adds a sophisticated charm to the watch along with comfort that is exclusive to Rolex. Equipped with an Oysterclasp and the Easylink comfort extension link, the bracelet length can be extended to 5mm which allows the wearer extra room to adjust the watch. So whatever be your dress code for the night, the Datejust is your companion. As if the looks weren’t enough, the Superlative Chronometer Calibre 3135 mechanical, self-winding movement works wonders when it comes to accurate time telling. A power reserve of 48 hours speaks volumes about this. The fluted bezel adds the finishing trademark touch to the Rolex. The case is the most outstanding feature of the watch given its Cyclops lens that covers the date aperture and magnifies the date providing easy legibility. The next time you have trouble picking out a classic understated watch for yourself, let the Rolex Datejust come to your rescue.
