Global Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki is endorsed by powerhouse watch brand Rolex and is seen sporting the Rolex Oyster Perpetual DateJust. The DateJust is an icon of horology and has graced the wrists of some of the world’s most influential men and women.
This timepiece was first introduced in 1945 and has, in large part, maintained its design over the last seven decades. The DateJust was the first self-winding watch to display the date in an aperture on the dial. This breakthrough was indeed groundbreaking and prompted Rolex to place the famous convex lens over this complication to highlight it in 1955. The convex lens, known as a Cyclops, magnifies the date by two and a half times.
The DateJust belongs to the Oyster Perpetual family, which gained its fame by being the first waterproof wristwatch. Today, the term waterproof is no longer used and each watch produced carries a water resistance rating in either meters, feet, bars, or atmospheres. The DateJust is water resistant to 100 meters or 330 feet, which is great for daily wear. This level of water resistance is enabled by Rolex’s proprietary TwinLock winding crown and the screwed in case back. The TwinLock crown features two sealed zones – one inside the tube of the crown, and the other inside the winding crown itself.
The model featured here is crafted in 18kt white gold and stainless steel. The case is measured at a midsized 36mm in diameter, excluding the main crown. On the bezel are individually set, high quality round brilliant diamonds, which give this gorgeous watch a dressy aesthetic. This Rolex Oyster Perpetual DateJust is fitted with a flat Oyster three piece bracelet, secured using a single folding clasp that is equipped with a safety feature.
The dial on this model is unique with its ultra-feminine pink floral motif dial design. The only two hour markers present are at the 6 and 9 positions, rendered using large, raised Arabic numerals. At the 12 position is the easily recognizable Rolex logo, and at 3 o’clock is the standard date aperture. Rolex uses sleek baton shaped hands to indicate the time. On this model, all of the dial elements are rhodium toned.
This DateJust uses the Caliber 3135 self-winding mechanical movement, which is completely designed and assembled in Rolex’s workshops. The 3135 is certified a chronometer by the COSC – Switzerland’s official watch testing bureau.
