Classic Rolex styling with a modern edge
To keep up with the widespread trend of larger watches, in 2009 Rolex took their quintessential Datejust model and redesigned it to be more in line with current gent’s styles by introducing the Datejust II family. Sized at 41mm, it’s quite a notable increase from the original 36mm size, and in its short history, has already become a popular choice among Rolex’s classic dress watches.
Rolex Stainless Steel and White Gold Datejust II 116334 is a rolesor.
Datejust II 116334 In White Gold and Steel
Among the varied choice of Datejust II pieces available, the Rolesor model ref. 116334 is one of the most refined and understated. The combination of stainless steel with just a touch 18k white gold portrays sophistication, masculine appeal, and timeless elegance. The majority of the watch is crafted from tough 904L stainless steel, including the Oystercase and Oyster bracelet while the 18k white gold is used on the decorative fluted bezel and on the dial.
Stainless steel with just a touch 18k white gold portrays sophistication for anyone.
The stainless steel Oystercase of the ref. 116334 is outfitted with the Twinlock waterproofness system screw-down crown for a guaranteed water resistance to 330 feet. The matching stainless steel Oyster bracelet with flat three-piece links and folding Oysterclasp boasts the Easylink extension system to allow wearers to lengthen the bracelet should they need to – a very practical feature of modern Rolex watches.
The Datejust II is an oyster perpetual meaning that it is water resistant.
This particular Datejust II ref. 116334 sports a sleek white dial, emphasizing the monochromic styling of the timepiece. To avoid discoloring, the large baton hour-markers and hands are created from 18k white gold and finished off with a luminescent coating for optimal readability in the dark. The date window naturally sits at the 3 o’clock position, magnified by the Cyclops lens fixed upon the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Aside from the white colored dial and stick indexes, the 116334 is also offered in a multitude of dial hues including black, rhodium, silver, and blue with options of Roman numerals, Arabic numbers or diamond indices.
Even the hands and the batons are 18k white gold to prevent discoloration.
Within the case of the Datejust II is the Rolex Caliber 3136 with the proprietary Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers components that allow the automatic mechanical movement to withstand more extreme external conditions, such as knocks and temperature variations. These minuscule mechanisms add to the caliber’s robustness and enhance the iconic reliability and precision of Rolex watches. And just like other Rolex calibers, the Caliber 3136 is labeled as a Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified thanks to its C.O.S.C. certification and intensive in-house testing.
So, if you’re in search of a chic, sharp, two-tone Rolex that is sporty and more dynamic than the traditional Datejust, then look to the Datejust II 116334 for its impeccable style.
