Rolex Lady Datejust ‘President’ Ref. 69178


Vintage Rolex 26mm Lady Datejust ‘President’ Champagne Dial, President Bracelet, Ref. 69178

The Rolex Datejust was first introduced in 1945 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rolex brand. It was the world’s first self-winding wristwatch with a date display on the dial, and its timeless design has made it one of the most iconic and recognizable watches in the world. Over the years, the Datejust has been updated with new features and materials, but it has remained true to its original design and functionality.

The vintage Lady Datejust ‘President’ 69178, crafted circa 1984, stands as a classic example of enduring elegance. With a 26mm 18k yellow gold case and a matching fluted bezel, it encapsulates the luxurious and timeless design elements characteristic of Rolex. The sapphire crystal enhances durability while allowing a clear view of the champagne dial adorned with gold stick hour markers. Tritium lume plots on the hands contribute to the vintage charm, further accentuating the watch’s appeal. Powered by a self-winding 2135 caliber movement, the watch combines traditional craftsmanship with reliable performance. The watch was recently serviced by our watchmaker, so offers years of worry-free wear. The 18k yellow gold President bracelet, featuring a folding hidden crown clasp, not only complements the watch’s design but also ensures a secure and comfortable fit. This vintage Rolex Lady Datejust ‘President’ 69178, with its iconic design and historical significance, remains a sought-after choice for those who appreciate the combination of luxury and horological heritage in a timepiece.

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.
