Pre-Owned Rolex 26mm Date, Silver Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 79160

The Datejust is undeniably one of Rolex’s most recognizable models dating back to the 1940’s when it was introduced to commemorate Rolex’s 40th anniversary. The Date model seen here is often confused for the Datejust due to their similarities. The Rolex Date was introduced later in the 1950’s and most notably was in a smaller case size.

The Rolex Date 79160 features a classic 26mm stainless steel Oyster case with a smooth bezel, offering a timeless and versatile look suitable for various occasions. Its silver dial is adorned with sleek stick hour markers, providing a clear and straightforward display of time. The watch includes a date reference function, adding practicality to its design. Powered by the reliable self-winding 2235 caliber movement by Rolex, this timepiece ensures accurate timekeeping. It comes equipped with a durable stainless steel Oyster bracelet known for its comfort and resilience. The original box and papers are included, enhancing its authenticity and value as a collectible item.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
