One of the key features is the reliability and precision that a Swiss-manufactured watch offers. The movement included in a two-tone model is chronometer-certified by the COSC. In 1931, the Oyster Perpetual automatic movement was introduced and has been a popular choice ever since. The most recent Caliber 3235 self-winding mechanical movement can be found in current-production models, and it offers increased timekeeping precision and a longer power reserve compared to its predecessors. Regardless of the specific generation of two-tone Datejust, you can expect a long life and great accuracy from any of Rolex's legendary mechanical movements.
The dial comes in many different colors. Some of the many variations include white, silver, black, and gold (among others).
