The Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch was introduced for the first time in a 41mm case. Bulky and elegant, it is a perfect fit for a strong arm. Worn by people in sport and business, the Rolex Datejust II Rolesor timepieces are symbols of successful person.
Rolex launched its first Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch in 1945. It was unique piece of art, entirely crafted in yellow gold. Since then, Rolex has manufactured number of Datejust timepieces, introducing new technologies along the way. Oyster Perpetual Datejust II is the latest watch in the outstanding collection.
Unlike the standard size of 36 mm in diameter, the Datejust II featured significantly bigger case, providing more striking look. However, it preserved entire design of earlier models that had deserved the status of brand’s icon.
First of all, there is the magnifying Cyclops eye and a date window at 3 o’clock position. Another Rolex signature feature at the Datejust II is the gold-fluted bezel, which had been made to protect a case from water pressure, but later became the pure aesthetic element. These watches are crafted in Rolesor, the special association of gold and steel that makes a perfect balance between toughness and luxury.
All Rolex admirers now that the name Oyster Perpetual means the superb quality and the long-lasting tradition. The Oyster case was proudly presented in 1926, as the first water and dust resistant time-telling device. Ever since, its special construction has guaranteed the highest durability. Today, it is water-proof up to 100 meters.
The word Perpetual refers to the self-winding mechanism, which has always been the symbol of brand’s precision. The Rolex Datejust II Rolesor is powered with the in-house automatic movement that developed high resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, thanks to the special Parachrom hairspring. It has made a great contribution to the extraordinary precision and reliability. This officially certified chronometer comprises 31 jewels, oscillates at frequency of 28,000 vibrations per hour and has 48 hours of power reserve.
