Rolex launched the Datejust in 1945 and is one of the most iconic watches ever produced by the Rolex 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 its beautiful yellow-gold tile bracelet has been conserved finely in these years, this watch features the classical waterproof Oyster case with the “cyclops” helping to read the roulette black/red date better. The dial is the peculiarity of this watch with the magnificent tropical silver-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 red writing “Officially” that is very uncommon to find for this model.
