The first watch in the Datejust collection was created in 1945 and symbolized a new post war era through its glamorous feel and amazing intricate details. The model came with waterproof mechanism and an elegant date design. Just as the first model, the new model is a symbol of opulence and offers a lot of exquisite features. In the 1950s a new model appeared which resembled the original but was designed especially for ladies, carrying a sort of sophistication undone before, not to mention a high level of functionality. The Lady Datejust nowadays is similar to both models designed for different sexes and has become an iconic watch for those who wish to retain an elegant look. The Lady Datejust is a smaller watch, just right for a delicate wrist. It measures a 26 mm case which is enhanced with various elements that will make it more than just a watch, almost a jewellery piece. Its elegant design is enhanced by the subtle shimmering colour that not only brings a sense of opulence but also manages to capture the sophistication of the elegant female that will be lucky enough to wear it.
The watch has been crafted in 118 carat gold but it is also available in other combinations from steel to platinum. Whatever the personality of its wearer is, they will be able to find something those suites them right as Rolex manages to create something for the minimalists but also something for the more glamorous wearers. The watch’s two tone bracelet is a celebration of superb craftsmanship as it adds even more beauty to an already perfect design. Actually the metal bracelet with the semi-circular three piece links was first introduced in 1956 in order to give the watch its refined look. Since then, the bracelets may have changed quite a bit but they still retain that refined feel they originally had. For its production, Rolex has used the finest materials and each watch is created with passion for watchmaking and for the finest details. It is a perfect gift to someone close to one’s heart, whether they are family or a significant other.
