It is no secret that Rolex has built a reputation for producing iconic watches that are beautiful, durable, and reliable. For many people, a Rolex isn’t just a watch – it’s a lifelong daily companion. No matter where you’re going or what you’re doing, a Rolex always seems to fit the occasion.
Keen observers will tell immediately that this watch is special. Introduced in the mid-1950s, the Rolex Date line complemented its older brethren, the Datejust. Distinguished mainly by materials, the Date and Datejust offer the same functionality but are different watches. And while still in production, the Date is now only available in stainless steel making the all gold version on offer today more special.
In a midsize 34mm case, the Date is not too big for small wrists nor too large for petite ones. The Date adheres to the classic Rolex aesthetic with its gold case and champagne dial. The oyster case is topped with an 18kt yellow gold fluted bezel and matched by the gold screw-down crown at the 3 o’clock position. The dial features simple stick hour indicators and the aftermarket ostrich leather strap finishes the watch’s distinguished look. While beautifully elegant in appearance, the Date spares nothing in terms of build quality and durability. It features a water resistance of 100 meters, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and an automatic movement that has been tested extensively to meet Rolex’s stringent standards for performance and accuracy.
