A slightly smaller version of the iconic Rolex Datejust, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date is one of the most classic Rolex models in the brand's catalog. With hundreds of different variations, the pre-owned Rolex Date can be some of the more affordable used Rolex watches on the market. Very similar to a Rolex DateJust, the Date model was one of the first watches in history to display a date on the dial. Always be in-style wearing your used Rolex Date.
The Rolex Date measures 34mm in diameter, while the size of the traditional Datejust is 36mm. Although functionality is identical for Rolex Date and Datejust models of the same generation, the Datejust is available with significantly more options in regards to size, bezel, dial, bracelet, and materials, and is priced higher than the Rolex Date.
The cheapest Rolex is the Oyster Perpetual; however, the Rolex Date is the second least expensive Rolex watch collection currently available. The standard 36mm Rolex Datejust in stainless steel is priced slightly higher than the Date, but prices both date-displaying Rolex watches start out at more than even the most expensive no-date Oyster Perpetual model.
While their names are similar, there is a huge price difference between the Rolex Date and the Rolex Day-Date. Retail prices for the Rolex Date start out at $6,300, while the least expensive Day-Date watch retails for $31,550. Additionally, while the vast majority of Rolex Date watches are constructed from stainless steel, the Rolex Day-Date is exclusively construed from precious metals.
The Rolex Day-Date is the flagship watch in the Rolex catalog. While the Rolex Date and Datejust display the date of the month through a window at the 3 o’clock location, the Rolex Day-Date also displays the day of the week (spelled out in full) through a window at the 12 o’clock location. Additionally, the Rolex Day-Date is only ever crafted from either solid 18k gold or 950 platinum.
