A ground-breaking first and a true watchmaking icon: today we have the pleasure of presenting the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 in a sublime Everose Rolesor version. Created in 1945, the Datejust was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at three o’clock on the dial. Its timeless aesthetics, superb functionality and rich history have established the Datejust as a watchmaking icon and one of Rolex’s most recognizable designs.
The Datejust offers an inimitable blend of elegance, luxurious style and robust engineering — attributes that have made it the ideal timepiece to wear every day, from workdays and holidays to the most precious of moments.
This stunning Everose Rolesor version of the Datejust 41 features a fluted bezel, a Sundust dial and the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet.
“Everose Rolesor” refers to the combination of 18ct Everose gold, a unique 18ct pink gold alloy developed and cast by Rolex, and Oystersteel, a rugged yet beautifully finished stainless steel also mastered by the brand.
By including the iconic fluted bezel with its intricate facets — all crafted to the same, extremely high standard — the resulting exterior makes for a precious timepiece made to be worn with pride for decades to come.
The Sundust dial is an exquisite match with the Everose Rolesor exterior. Its warm undertones work in harmony with the rosy hues of 18ct Everose gold bezel, winding crown and centre bracelet links, while its lustrous sunray finish ensures a balance with the sheen of the exterior. Its Chromalight hour markers and hands are crafted from 18ct Everose gold and provide a long-lasting blue glow for optimal low-light legibility. The highlight of the dial is, of course, the Rolex crown emblem, also meticulously crafted from solid 18ct Everose gold.
The small crown printed directly below the six o’clock marker indicates the presence of the latest-generation Manufacture Rolex calibre. Entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex for a superlative level of performance, calibre 3235 is certified as a Swiss chronometer by COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) and is tested a second time by Rolex after being cased to ensure that in everyday use it satisfies the brand’s criteria for precision — criteria which are twice as exacting as those for COSC-certified chronometers.
Its green seal and text on the dial serve as marks of distinction that testify to the timepiece having passed Rolex’s own extremely stringent tests concerning timekeeping precision, self-winding, power reserve and water resistance.
The Datejust combines its timeless aesthetics with superb everyday functionality and dependability: owing to its Oyster case construction and Twinlock winding crown with a double waterproofness system, it is waterproof to 100 meters, while its calibre offers a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. This long power reserve is efficiently and unnoticeably replenished by the Perpetual movement’s self-winding system when the Datejust 41 is worn on the wrist.
Outstanding wearing comfort is essential to such an ageless timepiece and it is provided by the Jubilee bracelet and its extremely comfortable five-piece link design. Notably, the Datejust 41 is also configurable with a three-piece link Oyster bracelet. A folding Oysterclasp safely secures the Datejust 41 on the wrist while its built-in, tool-free Easylink 5mm comfort extension link provides convenient adjustability of the bracelet length whenever necessary.
Inside and out, the Everose Rolesor version of the Datejust 41 continues the range’s 75-year reputation as a true watchmaking icon, celebrated for its timeless appeal, outstanding functionality, wearing comfort and durability.
Just a year after Rolex launched the first of its Submariner divers’ watches, sister-brand Tudor debuted its Oyster Prince Submariner reference 7922 in 1954 – and so the long and rich lineage of the Tudor dive watch was born.
