Rolex Lady Date Ref. 79160

$4,295

Pre-Owned Rolex 26mm Lady Date, Blue 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 Lady Date in a 26mm stainless steel case with a smooth bezel is seen less often than the Datejust, which makes it an attractive model in its own right. The elegant blue dial with silver hour sticks and luminescent plots  makes it a very versatile watch that can be worn dressed up or casually. The watch is powered by Rolex’s self winding 2235 caliber movement, which offers a 48 hour power reserve. Attached to the case is a stainless steel Oyster bracelet with a folding clasp. This Ladies Date is in excellent condition and includes box and papers.

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.
