For decades, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust has always been the modern archetype of the classic men’s wristwatch. Created upon a special order from Abu Dhabi in the early 1980s, this present example of Rolex Datejust was part of a small request of exclusive timepieces. Its case in stainless steel with 18k yellow-gold bezel is completed by a two-tone jubilee bracelet. On the beautiful gilded dial, the crest of Abu Dhabi can be clearly observed above 6 o’clock. Recipients of this type of watch were usually given in recognition of services rendered or honors.
