1945 saw the birth of the Datejust, the first self‑winding wrist chronometer to indicate the date in a window on the dial. A watch of great distinction, the Datejust was equipped with a Jubilee bracelet created especially for it and a fluted bezel, making it immediately recognisable as a Rolex. With its timeless aesthetics, functions and rich history, the Datejust is a watchmaking icon and one of the brand's most recognizable watches.
What’s On Offer
This 1980s Rolex Datejust is in superb vintage condition and is supplied with its original box and papers. The dial has been well preserved over the years and remains blemish free. Furnished with applied baton markers and housing a quick set date wheel underneath a cyclops, with elegant stick hands and a central seconds hand, the dial design is quintessential and will simply never go out of style.
This watch reference has the quick set date feature which means that the date can be set independently from the timekeeping hands. Conversely, on a non-quickset Datejust, the minute and hour hands have to be advanced past midnight to change the numeral in the date window.
This particular watch boasts an engine-turned bezel in stainless steel, which is only found on this reference and is a move away from the classic fluted or smooth bezels we see on Datejusts more often. The timeless dial design, engine-turned bezel and the Jubilee bracelet are a classic and iconic combination.
