Rolex launched the Datejust in 1945 and is one of the most iconic watches ever produced by the English origin brand. The reason why it has been called Datejust is pretty logical since this model has the capability to show “just” the date at the stroke of midnight. Equipped with the famous jubilee bracelet, this watch features the classical waterproof Oyster case with the “cyclops” helping to read the date better and the red date. The dial is the peculiarity of this watch with the magnificent tropical mustard-yellow color which turned the original white dial, decorated with applied dagger numerals and alpha rhodium hands. Exactly under the Rolex Oyster Perpetual stands the signature Serpico y Laino, retailer of Caracas, Venezuela, active from 1925 to 1966 and known as one of the best watches retailers in the whole South America.
