Rolex Datejust II Ref. 116334

$9,100

Pre-Owned Rolex 41mm Datejust II Stainless Steel Bracelet, Ref. 116334

Rolex’s Datejust is the archetype of the classic watch, thanks to functions and aesthetics that never go out of fashion. Launched in 1945 for the 40th anniversary of Rolex, it was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial.   For this Datejust II, the famous Cyclops magnification lens sits on top of the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal above the date indicator at 3 o’clock.  The watch is powered by the caliber 3136, which is a COSC-certified chronometer.  Water resistant to 330 feet, it is partly due to the Twinlock winding crown and screw-down case back.  The Datejust II stainless steel Oyster bracelet features polished center links flanked by outer brushed links. Additionally, unlike older Datejust generations, the bracelet on the Datejust II features completely solid end-links and center links, along with a more refined proprietary Easy-Link comfort extension clasp.  When the Datejust was first introduced, it  consolidated all the major innovations that Rolex had contributed to the modern wristwatch until then.  The Datejust II continues as a hallmark of Rolex.

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 its success.
