Description

A now iconic time piece, the Rolex Datejust was first introduced in 1954. Throughout the years, the Swiss manufacturer has been building upon the recognisable characteristic of the model introducing developments and updating its movements. In 1965 for instance Rolex introduced their celebrated calibre 1570 and since 1972 a hacking second hand mechanism was also included to allow for a more precise and smooth time adjusting experience.
