Today’s Datejust is established on the grounds of a truly special heritage. Created in 1945, the Datejust was the first waterproof, self-winding chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial. With its timeless aesthetics, functions and rich history, the Datejust is a watchmaking icon and one of Rolex’s most recognizable watches — especially in its more traditional configurations, such as the reference we have the opportunity to present to you today.
This Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 in Yellow Rolesor features a smooth bezel, silver dial and an Oyster bracelet. Yellow Rolesor entails an exterior constructed from an elegant combination of 18ct yellow gold (hence the name Yellow Rolesor) and Oystersteel, the rugged, yet beautifully finished stainless steel mastered by Rolex.
The smooth bezel lends a distinctly different mood to the Datejust 41 when compared to the iconic fluted bezel option: it frames the dial in a way that helps bring it to the fore, into the center of attention — and perform well in the spotlight, this dial definitely does.
With its 10 baton markers, all framed in 18ct yellow gold, applied Rolex Crown at 12 o’clock also in 18ct yellow gold, and the Date highlighted by the cyclops magnifier, it is a beautifully balanced and proportioned dial.
Arabic numerals discreetly placed at the edge of the dial aid legibility and add a modern touch, as do the double-faceted, 18ct yellow gold hands with their Chromalight luminescent centers. Owing to these and the likewise luminescent hour markers, the Datejust 41 remains legible even in the dark.
On the wrist, the Datejust 41 offers its trademark versatility: all the way to the most formal of occasions and attires, the Datejust 41 in Yellow Rolesor promises to look the part. With its Oyster case construction and Twinlock crown with its double waterproofness system, it ensures peace of mind with a water resistance rating of 100 meters.
Powered by the latest generation Manufacture Rolex Calibre 3235, the Datejust 41 is a true Superlative Chronometer that is at the very pinnacle of modern watchmaking in terms of accuracy, dependability and feature-set.
