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. The dial is the peculiarity of this watch with the magnificent white turned to a mustard-yellow color, decorated with applied baton numerals and alpha rhodium hands. Exactly under the Rolex Oyster Perpetual stands the signature "Datejust" and the depth both in red that are rare to be found on a similar watch.
