THIS OYSTER PERPETUAL LADY-DATEJUST IN 18 KT YELLOW GOLD FEATURES A SILVER, DIAMOND-SET DIAL AND A PRESIDENT BRACELET.
The light reflections on the case sides and lugs highlight the elegant profile of the 28 mm Oyster case, which is fitted with a diamond-set bezel. Rolex's classic feminine watch, the Lady-Datejust is in the lineage of the Datejust, the emblematic model that has been a byword for style and accurate timekeeping.
A DISTINCTIVE FACE
The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability.
Characterised by hour markers fashioned from gold to prevent tarnishing, every Rolex dial is designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection.
A SPARKLING SYMPHONY
Gem-setters, like sculptors, finely carve the precious metal to hand-shape the seat in which each gemstone will be perfectly lodged. With the art and craft of a jeweller, the stone is placed and meticulously aligned with the others, then firmly secured in its gold or platinum setting. Besides the intrinsic quality of the stones, several other criteria contribute to the beauty of Rolex gem-setting: the precise alignment of the height of the gems, their orientation and position, the regularity, strength and proportions of the setting as well as the intricate finishing of the metalwork. A sparkling symphony to enhance the watch and enchant the wearer.
18 KT YELLOW GOLD
COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
By operating its own exclusive foundry, Rolex has the unrivalled ability to cast the highest quality 18 kt gold alloys. According to the proportion of silver, copper, platinum or palladium added, different types of 18 kt gold are obtained: yellow, pink or white. They are made with only the purest metals and meticulously inspected in an in-house laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment, before the gold is formed and shaped with the same painstaking attention to quality. Rolex's commitment to excellence begins at the source.
THE PRESIDENT BRACELET
THE ULTIMATE REFINEMENT
This Lady-Datejust is offered on a prestigious President bracelet. Always in solid gold or platinum, the bracelets benefit from a concealed attachment beneath the bezel which ensures seamless visual continuity between the bracelet and case. A new-generation concealed Crownclasp, opened with a hinged Rolex crown, adds the final aesthetic and functional touch to these sumptuous bracelets.
THE CYCLOPS LENS
A MAGNIFYING LENS
The Cyclops lens is one of the most distinctive Rolex features, and one of the most recognizable. Named after the one-eyed giant of Greek mythology, the Cyclops lens magnifies the watch’s emblematic date display two and a half times for easy reading. Behind the Cyclops, as with every feature of a Rolex timepiece, lies a history of invention, research and development, and the endless search for perfection.
The calibre 2236 is a new-generation self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Fitted with a Syloxi hairspring in silicon, patented by Rolex, it offers a superlative level of chronometric performance. Insensitive 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. Its patented geometry ensures its regularity in any position.
