Lavish Lady-Datejust: 4 Ladies Diamond Watches

Paul Altieri

Among all the watches that Rolex offers, it’s the Lady-Datejust that outsells every other model. Cherished for their timeless elegance, prestige, versatility, and longevity, the Rolex Lady-Datejust is the quintessential women’s luxury watch. It’s the little black dress of high-end timepieces—always in style and utterly dependable.

4 Ladies Diamond Watches

Unlike the standard quartz movements found in ladies’ watches from other brands, Lady-Datejust watches all run on automatic mechanical movements. While the name Lady-Datejust refers to the women’s Rolex dress watches equipped with date windows, there are several different models that fall under that name. Let’s have a look at four different diamond Rolex watches for the ladies.

A diamond watch with its two-tone bracelet is a great watch for the ladies.

Diamond Lady-Datejust

Our first example of a diamond Lady-Datejust is the two-tone Rolesor Datejust ref. 179161 that combines sporty stainless steel and precious 18k Everose rose gold. Everose is Rolex’s proprietary rose gold alloy, which the company says will never fade thanks to its secret blend of gold, copper, and platinum.

Sized at a classic 26mm, the Lady-Datejust ref. 179161 includes a smooth rose gold bezel, a steel Oyster bracelet with rose gold center links, and a pink dial. On that dial we see the ten diamond hour markers along with the date window at 3 o’clock. Plus, as with almost all Rolex watches with a date window, there’s also the Cyclops magnification lens on the sapphire crystal. The Lady-Datejust ref. 179161 is a beautiful way to wear an everyday Rolex diamond watch.

There are many diamonds that are set on the bezel.

Diamond Lady-Datejust Midsize

For those looking for a slightly larger and sportier ladies’ Rolex watch, there’s the midsize Datejust ref. 178344. This time, the 31mm Oyster case is crafted entirely in stainless steel, as is the matching Oyster bracelet. However, for a touch more luxury, the bezel boasts 24 diamonds.

But that’s not all. On the black dial of the Datejust ref. 178344, the Roman numeral IV shines brighter than the rest due to its diamond setting. Furthermore, the dark purple hue of the dial is an especially attractive contrast to the white metals and diamonds of the watch. This midsize Lady-Datejust is a superb casual chic version of a Rolex diamond watch.

The Pearl-Master is a different iteration of the Datejust with a unique bracelet and bezel.

Diamond Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster

In 1992, Rolex unveiled a jewelry watch collection within the Lady-Datejust family, dubbed the Rolex Pearlmaster. Exclusively available in 18k gold and always furnished with diamonds, the Datejust Pearlmaster gets its name from its bracelet. The rounded five‑piece links Pearlmaster bracelet is immediately recognizable and integral to the style of the watch.

The Pearlmaster ref. 69318 is a solid 18k yellow gold version with a 29mm Oyster case. Dotting the smooth bezel are 12 white diamonds, while the white dial houses yellow gold Roman numerals. A sophisticated Rolex diamond watch, the yellow gold Pearlmaster is as precious as its name suggests.

Ladies Diamond Watches
Just like any other President the ladies comes with the exclusive bracelet.

Diamond Lady-Datejust President

The Rolex President is perhaps one of the most famous names in luxury watches. And it’s not just men who get to have one either! Although the Lady President is actually a Datejust rather than a Day-Date, it still gets to carry the legendary nickname since it’s equipped with the renowned President bracelet.

Just like the men’s Rolex President, the Lady-Datejust President models are only available in precious metals. For instance, from its 26mm Oyster case to its famous curvy semi-circular three-piece links bracelet, this Datejust President ref. 179179 is fashioned in 18k white gold. Topping the case is the signature Rolex fluted bezel whereas the white mother-of-pearl dial sets the perfect stage for ten diamond hour markers. The most prestigious of all Lady-Datejust watches, it doesn’t get much better than a Presidential Rolex diamond watch.

Whether in steel, gold, or two-tone, a Lady-Datejust is a tasteful everyday luxury timepiece that is deserving of its iconic status. And a dash of diamonds never hurts either!
