The Rolex Datejust is a fundamental watch that has been around for over 70 years. In fact, a Rolex Datejust is a practical model offering what you need in an everyday timepiece and nothing more.
The Datejust is also the quintessential “goes everywhere, does everything” timepiece. When men say they want a watch they can wear with jeans as well as a suit, this is the go-to recommendation. The Datejust defines versatility.
Perhaps one of the most classic and recognizable Rolex watches, the basics of the Datejust’s discreet, understated design have barely changed over its more than 70-year history. The standard men’s Datejust model is available in steel, steel with white, yellow, everose gold, or yellow gold. The watch( shown above) even has some film appearances, in the movie American Psycho, Patrick Bateman wearing the Rolex Datejust 16013. And as Rolex states, the Datejust is a watch “For those who believe that elegance is timeless”.
While a 41mm version was launched in 2009, the Datejust was previously available only in smaller sizes including 36mm (mens), 31mm (mid size) and 26mm for the ladies. With its 41 mm diameter, this latest incarnation satisfies the desire for a timepiece that makes a bold statement on the wrist. This enduring model has been worn by many famous individuals including President Dwight Eisenhower, literally countless actors, and even Tony Soprano.
The new 41mm size collection was introduced last year with two precious metal versions, yellow gold and Everose and steel. As a result, 2017 Rolex answered many fans’ pleas. They launched an all stainless steel variant. This more affordable example of one of the all-time classic Rolex replica watches also benefits from the next generation caliber 3235 that drives the Sea-Dweller, along with a leaner case, slimmed down hour markers and a bezel in white gold.
The Datejust series has always been the most varied in the Rolex lineup. Rolex offers its line with a bewildering range of different configurations of dial colors, bracelets and indexes. Also, they offer them with either a flat or fluted bezel. Widening the collection even further, an 18k white gold and steel model was launched alongside the 904L steel version.
