Introduced in 1945, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust is easily one of the world’s most iconic watches. Featuring an elegant design and Cyclops eye designed to magnify the date, stainless steel Datejusts
are available with diamond, fluted and smooth bezels, as well as leather bands. Rolex
hails the Datejust
as the “modern archetype of the classic watch” that has “spanned eras” while maintaining codes that make it a classic. This watch was the first waterproof, self-winding chronometer timepiece to feature the date through an aperture on the dial. The date-change mechanism was enhanced in 1955 for instant operation.
