At Baselworld 2017 Rolex introduced the 904L steel version of its classic Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 model. They also came out with a steel and 18 ct white gold option- the Rolesor option, which has been a signature feature of the brand since 1933. They sport a Rolex calibre 3235 and a newly designed 41 mm case which has a power reserve of up to 70 hours.
Rolex’s Datejust is the classic watch that never goes out of fashion. Launched in 1945, 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 is one of the most recognized and recognizable watches of the Rolex lineup.
The Oyster case of the Datejust 41 has a robust waterproof design to a depth of 330 feet, having been crafted from a solid block of 804L steel. Its Twinlock double waterproofness system and wind down screws secure tightly against the case. Additionally, the sapphire crystal is virtually scratchproof. The Cyclops lens gives maximum visibility to the date at 3 o’clock.
The new Datejust 41 is available on an Oyster or Jubilee bracelet. Both these solid-link, 904L steel bracelets benefit from the new concealed attachment system beneath the bezel, which ensures seamless visual continuity between the bracelet and case. They are equipped with a folding Oyster clasp and also feature the ingenious Rolex-patented Easylink rapid extension system that allows the wearer to easily increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm, for additional comfort in any circumstance.
