Pre-Owned Rolex 26mm Lady Datejust, Silver Diamond Dial, Jubilee Bracelet, Ref. 79174

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. The Datejust consolidated all the major innovations that Rolex had contributed to the modern wristwatch until then, and continues to be a hallmark of Rolex. The 26mm case hosts an 18k white gold fluted bezel, as well as an original Rolex silver diamond dial. Attached is Rolex’s popular Jubilee bracelet, making this an all around classic Datejust model that won’t disappoint.

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.
