New Rolex Lady-DatejustAugust 9, 2021
This new version of the Rolex Lady-Datejust is equipped with calibre 2236, a movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology.
Like all Rolex watches, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust carries the Superlative Chronometer certification, which ensures excellent performance on the wrist.
The classic Rolex feminine watch, the Lady-Datejust benefits from all the attributes of the Datejust, the emblematic Rolex watch that has been a byword for style and technical performance ever since its launch in 1945. The women’s version of this date chronometer, the Lady-Datejust, which first appeared in 1957, carries the elegance of the Datejust in a small 28 mm size perfectly suited to a slender wrist.
A paragon of robustness and elegance, the Lady-Datejust’s Oyster case is 28 mm in diameter. Its middle case is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct yellow gold. The case back, edged with fine fluting, is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The Twinlock winding crown, fitted with a double waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case. The crystal is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire and is fitted with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date. The waterproof Oyster case provides optimum protection for the watch’s movement.
The new 18 ct yellow gold version of the Lady-Datejust is fitted with a President bracelet. Created specially for the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date in 1956, the three-piece link President bracelet is still reserved exclusively for the Day-Date range and some versions of the Datejust.
The President bracelet on this gem-set version of the Lady-Datejust is bedecked with 596 brilliant-cut diamonds. It includes an elegant concealed folding Crownclasp and ceramic inserts inside the links to enhance its flexibility and longevity. In addition, a concealed attachment system ensures seamless visual continuity between the bracelet and case.
Like all Rolex watches, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This designation testifies that every watch leaving the brand’s workshops has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria.
