For the world’s most famous watch brand, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust is “the watch of reference for those who believe that elegance is timeless.” Since timelessness is not synonymous with monotony at Rolex, this 2017 evolution of the iconic model comes in three case sizes (in gold and/or steel) and a variety of dial colors. The magic of the crown is as potent as ever, yet without resting on its laurels, since its inherently innovative nature has indeed been reinforced. Did you know that in 1945 Datejust was the first watch to indicate the date in a window at 3 o’clock rather than by a hand ? Created in 1926, the case of the Oyster collection also brought the concept of water resistance to watchmaking, while the pioneering spirit cultivated by Rolex had already been demonstrated with the first chronometer (precision timekeeping) certificates for wristwatches in 1910, as well as the Perpetual rotor ensuring automatic winding patented in 1931. Today, the movement of the Datejust benefits from the latest Rolex innovations, such as the patented blue Parachrom balance-spring capable of remaining ten times more accurate than a traditional balance-spring in case of impacts. In its 41mm version, this 2017 new model is equipped with the latest-generation Rolex movement boasting 14 patents, including one for the sturdy, comfortable and appealing bracelet.
