Rolex Datejust Watches Online

A self-winding chronometer, the Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic designs that the Swiss watchmaker has produced in the post-war period. Launched by Rolex onto the market in 1945, the Datejust was the first self-winding wristwatch to feature the date within the dial. This is located at the three o’clock position. Over the years, various design adaptations have been made – such as offering it in sizes from 28mm to 41mm, for example – but the way the date has been displayed has rarely been changed, such is the classic way the face of the Datejust is viewed by many owners and collectors of luxury wristwatches. Another distinguishing feature of the model is that it has a characteristic case. Coupled with a singular bezel, the Datejust is almost instantly recognisable from virtually any angle.

It is worth noting that both ladies’ and men’s versions of the Datejust have been produced over the decades since it first came out. The long-lasting Lady-Datejust, which had a 26mm case, was replaced in 2015 by the then-new 28mm variant. Today, Rolex has produced Datejusts in just three sizes – no longer the five it used to – and in three colour combinations. These are fully stainless steel, full gold – including the case and the bracelet – and, finally, two-tone yellow gold with some stainless steel. All are highly sought after in both the new and second-hand markets for their classic appearance and operational reliability. Bezels can be fluted, set with diamonds or have a smooth finish.
