The Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 is, in many ways, all the watch one could ever need. Its timeless design, inimitable elegance, uncompromised functionality and outstanding refinement of execution render it an heirloom quality timepiece. Its looks and wearing experience have been widely accepted and considered as the pinnacle in wrist watch design – since its original debut in 1945.
This particular model is the Datejust 36 in all Oystersteel: its Oyster case, Jubilee bracelet, folding Oysterclasp and domed bezel have all been crafted from the exceptional 904L stainless steel alloy, i.e. Oystersteel.
This version then, is the very essence of Datejust – but that does not mean anything is missing; far from it, in fact. Throughout its history, the Datejust has had its extravagant and highly precious iterations as much as its most elegant and essential specifications.
With a subtly finished dial in jet black, combined with the large, luminescent hour markers and hands, legibility and day-to-day performance are of utmost priority. Nevertheless, all applied dial elements are, including the hour markers, the Rolex Crown at 12 o’clock, as well as the hour, minute and seconds hands, have been crafted from 18ct white gold, for its luster and precious sheen.
The curved and high-polished Oystersteel bezel serves as the guardian of the case and dial, acting like a dome over a historic building, while the reworked lugs and case profile, with their more filigree shapes, help the new Datejust 36 show its ever-more-refined side.
The five-link Jubilee bracelet originally accompanied the Datejust back at its debut in 1945 – and has risen as a watchmaking icon in its own right in that time.
It is not only pure aesthetics where the Jubilee stands out: it offers sublime wearing comfort, as the small, curved links follow the shape of the wrist with ease.
The Jubilee bracelet now comes on the Oysterclasp for a more casual and contemporary look. Powering the new Datejust 36 is the latest generation Manufacture Rolex Caliber 3255, protected by a grand total of 14 patents. A consummate demonstration of Rolex technology, this movement offers over 70 hours of power reserve, as well as fundamental gains in precision, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, as well as in convenience and reliability. It incorporates the new Chronergy escapement that combines high efficiency with outstanding dependability.
On the wrist, the 36-millimeter-wide Datejust 36 looks and feels in ways to be experienced in person to be really appreciated. The effortless fit around the wrist, ideal legibility, robust construction and incredibly versatile and adaptable overall impression render it a true day-to-day timepiece that is as ideally suited for special occasions as it is for everyday wear – for years and decades to come.
In February 1926, the house of “Veuve de Philippe Hüther”, a watch dealer and maker, registered the trademark “The Tudor” for Hans Wilsdorf – a visionary par excellence.
The Datejust 36 attained its distinctive place in watchmaking history through its eternal style, versatility, functionality and adaptability.
