EMBODYING ROLEX KNOW-HOW
The perfect embodiment of the classic Rolex watch, the Datejust, launched in 1945, showcased all the major accomplishments developed to that point by the brand. It thus echoed the quest for excellence of Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf who believed that watchmaking progress should encourage human progress. In a period of great change, people’s relationship with time was shifting. Modern life moved to the rhythm of the passing days and was less connected to the seasons. The Datejust offers enhanced comfort in terms of legibility and daily time management.
