Released to celebrate Rolex's 40th anniversary in 1945, the Rolex Datejust has become one of the Genevan Giant's most iconic watches. The world's first wristwatch to display the date via an aperture on the dial, the Datejust revolutionized wristwatch design for decades to follow. With its emblematic Cyclops lens, jubilee bracelet (designed specifically for the model in 1945), and classy fluted precious metal bezel, the Datejust's aesthetic has always been that of pure elegance and class. Perhaps one of Rolex's most recognizable designs, the Datejust has evolved from its dressier roots into a perfectly capable timepiece rivaling the robustness of most brand's sports watches. Featuring a stainless steel case with a screw-down crown and caseback, the Datejust packs an impressive 100m of water resistance alongside its consistently capable movements and construction that have enabled it to become one of the best-equipped watches for daily wear and tear. Available with several different dial options, in a multitude of materials, and across many styles, the Datejust is an inescapable reflection of its owner, with a model out there to suit pretty much everybody's tastes and preferences.

Watch is in new unworn condition. Please note that the Rolex retailer incorrectly put the date as 2020 on the guarantee card rather than 2022. The watch was recently purchased and the dial is completely original to the watch. It was an inadvertent mistake by the retailer and not noticed at the time of purchase by the buyer.
A design seemingly as old as horology itself, the Datejust is a watch we'll never grow tired of. With its stunning green dial and iconic 36mm construction sporting the Datejust's signature combination of a fluted 18kt white gold bezel and Jubilee bracelet, there's nothing not to like with this stunning watch.
