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 and gold Oyster case with a waterproof screw-down crown, fluted bezel, yellow gold indices and sweeping hands, and cyclops lens.
