Description

One of the most recognizable luxury dress watches ever to be created, very few timepieces come close to the legendary status of the Rolex Datejust. Due to the watches very long production run, it was bound to have multiple variations. The present watch offered here today boasts a steel Oyster case with a screw-down crown and a fluted bezel with a jubilee bracelet.
