About Rolex Datejust Watches

Those in the market to buy a Rolex Datejust for sale can expect to find the best value when purchasing pre-owned. This Datejust is the world's first self-winding chronometer to display the date aperture, and is known for its precision and reliability. If you are looking for a classic and timeless Rolex look, the Datejust is the perfect choice. Click here to see our huge selection of Two Tone Rolex Datejust watches.

First introduced in 1945 to celebrate the company's 40th anniversary, the Rolex Datejust was the world's first self-winding waterproof wrist chronometer to display the date of the month through a window on the dial. Building on the proven design and technology of the brands Oyster Perpetual models, the simple yet elegant way that the calendar complication functions changed the entire watchmaking industry.

Visible through the 3 o'clock window in the dial, the date of the month is magnified by the cyclops lens on the surface of the crystal, and enlarges the numbers by a factor of 2.5 times to significantly increase legibility. While this is now the standard, it was this model that first introduced the new calendar system, and forever set the standard for date-displaying wristwatches.

Although this stylish dress watch has gone through a number of changes and updates throughout the years since the introduction of the original reference 4467, we continue to see that the Rolex Datejust has retained all of its hallmark traits like its waterproof Oyster case and its iconic fluted bezel. Additionally, regardless of the specific generation, all of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust watches have a very balanced weight when on the wrist, making them incredibly comfortable watches that can be worn every single day.

Model Variations

The Rolex Datejust is home to a number of different popular models including the Datejust 26, Datejust 28, Datejust 31, Datejust 36, Datejust 2 (also known as the Datejust II), and the Datejust 41. Additionally, this family is also home to the 34mm Date, and the now-discontinued Turn-O-Graph (aka Thunderbird) watches that feature rotating bezels, which could be used to time intervals up to 1 hour in length.


In the same way that the Rolex Datejust collection is available in a wide range of sizes, it is also available in a variety of different materials. Along with their Oystersteel (stainless steel) and solid 18 ct gold models, it is also manufactured in a combination of gold and steel, which is called Rolesor (also known throughout the industry as two-tone). These Rolesor watches are produced in three different varieties - Yellow Rolesor (yellow gold), White Rolesor (white gold), and Everose Rolesor (pink gold) - depending on which color of gold gets used in their construction.


Rolex dials are produced with a wide variety of different designs, but not all dial styles are available on all models. Many in the Oyster collection are only available with one style of dial; however this category has a seemingly endless number of dial options. In addition to the different styles of hour markers (stick, Roman numerals, diamonds, etc.), dials can also be found in a number of different textures and finishes. From classic sunburst and sundust dials to more opulent and elaborate designs such as mother of pearl, malachite, Jubilee, and meteorite, there is no single collection with a more diverse assortment of available dials.


Over the course of its production this model has been manufactured in the following sizes:

  • 26mm
  • 28mm
  • 31mm
  • 34mm (known as the Rolex Date)
  • 36mm
  • 41mm

With the exception of the 26mm Lady-Datejust, which has been discontinued in favor of the 28mm model, all of these sizes still exist in the modern catalog. While a number of Datejust watches are manufactured in different sizes, there is no other collection with quite the same degree of options.


The Oyster bracelet is a universal bracelet design, and it is available as an option of virtually every watch that the company currently manufacturers. However, the Jubilee bracelet was originally designed specifically for the introduction of the Datejust in 1945, and remains an option for Rolex's iconic date-displaying collection of watches. While the Oyster bracelet features flat, three-piece links and is fitted with Rolex's standard Oysterclasp, the Jubilee follows a rounded 5-piece link design, and is fitted with concealed Crownclasp, which provides a seamless look to the metal bracelet.


Since the Datejust was first introduced in 1945, this timepiece has been constantly evolving as the brand works to refine and improve upon its initial design. Although the overall aesthetics have remained largely unchanged throughout the years, there have been numerous different generations of internal movement used to power the watches throughout the years. The most recent movements being used are the Caliber 3235 (for men's models) and the Caliber 2236 (for the women’s models). Despite their differences, both movements are certified chronometers and guarantee timekeeping performance to -2/+2 seconds per day,. The Caliber 2236 features a Syloxi (silicon) hairspring for greater precision and stability, while the Caliber 3235 features new and improved Chronergy escapement, which replaces the Caliber 3135 and offers significantly improved efficiency over the previous generation.


Due to the wide range of sizes and options, the price can range significantly. Stainless steel, two-tone, and solid gold versions all have different prices, and the size of the watch itself influences the price further. While older references can be some of the most affordable references available on the pre-owned market, there are others - particularly those with rare dials or those crafted from precious metals - that can cost as much as a solid gold President.
