THE AUDACITY OF EXCELLENCE
“A classic timepiece, designed for a lady.” This is how some may describe the Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust. Maybe they’re right. Since the early 20th century, Rolex has designed and crafted watches suited for the wrists of every woman, with the same standard of excellence as all the models that have built its legend. So, if “classic” means always pursuing a higher standard, if it means perpetuating tradition while combining elegance with precision, grace with resistance, beauty with performance… then the Lady-Datejust is, indeed, a classic timepiece designed for a lady.
Since the earliest days of Rolex, women have inspired the creation and development of special timepieces that would support their quest for empowerment. The Lady-Datejust is a celebration of those who dare to lead the way. It embodies precision while combining classic elegance and technical performance.
GRACE AND ELEGANCE
Unveiled in 1957, the Lady-Datejust concentrates all the attributes of the Datejust, the emblematic Rolex watch that has been a byword for style and technical performance ever since its launch in 1945. The women’s version of this date chronometer, the Lady-Datejust carries the elegance of the Datejust in a smaller size perfectly suited to a slender wrist.
It offers so many choices that wearers can easily find one to reflect their personality. Sunray-finish dials, paved with diamonds or crafted from mother-of-pearl. Domed, fluted or diamond-set bezels. The many faces of the Lady-Datejust make this model one of the most varied in the Oyster Perpetual collection. It is available in Oystersteel, in 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold, or in Rolesor versions that combine Oystersteel and one of three varieties of gold (white, yellow and Everose).
PRECISION AND PERFORMANCE
The Lady-Datejust’s 28 mm Oyster case is a perfect blend of proportion, robustness and elegance. The distinctively shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of highly corrosion-
resistant Oystersteel or 18 ct gold. It is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet) and provides optimum protection to the watch’s movement. Exceptionally precise and reliable, it is fitted with a Syloxi hairspring in silicon patented by Rolex. Resistant to magnetic fields, the Syloxi hairspring provides great stability in the face of temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks.
Like all Rolex watches, the Lady-Datejust is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification. This designation testifies that every watch leaving the brand’s workshops has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria. The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.
