A direct lineage to the Datejust family is Rolex's classic feminine timepiece, Lady Datejust. This symbolic model has become a byword when it comes to style and precise timekeeping ever since its debut in 1845. Lady Datejust is the first women's version of the date chronometer family, offering the appearance of timeless elegance, fashion and functionally that is beautifully draped upon a lady's wrist.
Perhaps what makes this model stand out is the Rolesor, the marriage of gold and steel on a Rolex watch. This has become the starring feature of the brand ever since the 1930s when the name was first registered. It was a breathtaking harmony—two different types of metal delivering two personas in one body. The gold, a regal and noble material, is known for its luster and richness. The metal, on the other hand, is known for its robust qualities and reliability. All these characteristics mirror the elegance and performance that come together in one Rolex watch.
Here in Lady Datejust, the Rolesor design is simple and straightforward. The beautiful details such as the bezel, winding crown and the central bracelet links are made of 18ct yellow or Everose, Rolex's patented pink gold alloy. The middle case and the outer bracelet links, however, are crafted with 904L steel. It has been this way since the design has been introduced on the Datejust in 1948, where the Rolesor's unique appearance have contributed largely to the mythical status of this cherished timepiece.
Lady Datejust boasts of an Oyster case that guarantees waterproof capabilities of a depth of 100 meters. It is a standard of elegance, proportion and strength, being crafted from the finest material, including a solid block of 904L. The fluted case is brilliantly screwed down with an exclusive tool that Rolex watchmakers have access to. It is fitted with the Twinlock double waterproofing system, with winding crown screws that securely fits the case. Its crystal comes with a cyclops lens at 3 o'clock position, promising legibility, and these are both made out of sapphire.
This handsome ladies' watch comes with Caliber 2236, a new-generation, self-winding mechanical movement developed in-house by Rolex. Its prominent feature, the Syloxi hairspring in silicon, has been patented by the brand and offers a maximum level of chronometric performance. It shuts down magnetic fields and provides great endurance when faced with various temperatures. Guaranteeing 10 times more precise than the traditional hairspring, this component ensures regularity in any position. A power reserve of 55 hours comes with this movement.
