Rolex Datejust 36 Reference 126233

Arguably the perfect configuration after the Holiday Season is this Datejust 36 in Yellow Rolesor, with a beautiful, green dial and Roman numerals.

Although perfect for the holiday celebrations, the Datejust 36 is everything but seasonal. The telltales of truly great watch design is in fact timelessness: standing above passing trends, and yet looking à la mode at any given moment is what separates the best from the has beens.

Proportions are an essential, yet underrated component of outstanding watches, and this Datejust 36 in Yellow Rolesor is no exception. Smooth and fluted surfaces, vivid and neutral colors, powerful and filigree components add up to create a perfectly balanced timepiece

This particular Datejust 36 reference 126233 ticks all those boxes. As its name indicates, its case measures 36 millimeters in diameter: the largest size to be generally considered as perfect for women and men alike. For ladies, the Datejust 36 is substantial and noticeable, without being oversized or ostentatious. The same could be said about its Yellow Rolesor exterior. Rolex uses the term “Rolesor” to refer to watches with exteriors crafted from a tasteful and elegant combination of Oystersteel stainless steel and 18ct gold.

Yellow Rolesor is the official name of the two-tone, 18ct yellow gold and Oystersteel exterior of this Datejust 36. Beautiful, precious and timeless in its design

This creative use of two distinctly different materials works a charm: gold adds luster and preciousness, while Oystersteel highlights the durable construction and everyday utility of the Datejust 36’s Oyster case and Oyster bracelet.

The green dial with Roman numerals, Rolex Crown and hands in 18ct yellow gold is a masterpiece in and of itself. The subtle sunburst brushed finish serves as the backdrop that adds texture to the velvety green hue over it. The crisp, white text highlights its Rolex-specific features, including its Oyster case, Perpetual self-winding system and Superlative Chronometer certification.

The Roman numerals are as timeless, yet ever-green an element to any watch dial, as one could imagine.

On the Datejust 36 their top surfaces are softly domed and curved for a that much more refined and elegant appearance upon a closer look.

The six and nine o’clock indices on the latest iteration of Datejust 36 dials feature diamond-set numerals, each set and decorated by hand to attain absolute perfection.

Green is a special color on Rolex watches, as it is the color most closely associated with Rolex. Fortunately, the color is not reserved for men’s watches only: this spectacular Datejust 36 combines the color with diamond-set indices at 6 and 9 o’clock

The Datejust 36 in Yellow Rolesor with a green, diamond-set dial is the perfect gift this holiday season and after it; but, as the perfect gift should, it will last forever.
