As a release in 1945 to commemorate Rolex’s 40th anniversary, the Datejust surpassed its predecessors by being the first automatic wristwatch with an automatically changing date window at midnight. The Oyster case introduced in 1926 offered a resolution to an unaddressed need: resistance to water. With such groundbreaking features, the Datejust quickly became one of the world’s most popular luxury timepieces.
The watch is in overall fair condition with moderate wear throughout consistent with usage. Case is in overall fair condition with moderate surface wear. Acrylic crystal has scratches throughout. The bracelet and buckle have moderate signs of stretch and surface wear throughout commensurate with age and usage. Caseback has minor nicks. The movement is running at the time of cataloging, however, it was not tested for the accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note that Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement.
