Smart but sporty, functional yet simple, the Datejust is one of the longest produced models in the Rolex catalog. Initially launched in 1945, this watch enjoys over seven decades of successful aesthetic and functional evolution. The last step in its continuous upgrade was the augmentation of the case which translates into a more modern dress watch, thus making it more appealing to the contemporary man who values trends and style. The here offered reference 116334 has the updated case measuring 41 mm and was released at Baselworld in 2009. Differing from its predecessor, reference 16234, also by an enlarged date disc and the new caliber 3136 movement, the unquestionable advantages of the augmented 41 mm case are the wider dial and the increased legibility. The case has been manufactured in stainless steel and preserved in almost untouched conditions while the bezel is in white gold, also called white Rolesor by Rolex. While adding weight and importance to the watch, this choice of materials grants it an extremely elegant look and sportyness with the solid Oyster bracelet. The dial is black with applied big wide luminous hour markers and the large Rolex crown logo located at 12 o’clock, enhancing legibility in any lighting conditions. The 116334 is a very popular option on the market due to its sporty vibe and smart design and the present one is even more appealing coming with its original warranty, box, tags and papers.
