|Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 116234
If you’re only going to be wearing one watch from now on, it needs to be one that you can wear in any situation. A watch equally at home in the boardroom as it is by the pool.
For me, that will always be the Rolex Datejust 36mm ref 116234.
With its first iteration released in 1945 to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary, the core design of the Datejust has barely changed over the seven decades it’s been in continuous production. And the reason for that is simple: they got it right first time.
There haven’t been many over the years, but there are a small handful of designs that were pretty much nailed right out of the gate, leaving very little to be done with them over the subsequent decades, bar delicate tweaks and subtle improvements.
They are the ones that have stood the test and ravages of time and transcended anything as ephemeral or subjective as fashion.
Where watches are concerned, the Rolex Datejust is perhaps the most convincing example.
But personally, I think the Datejust 36mm ref 116234 has the most versatility. It has an understated modesty I like, while still being tough enough to handle anything.
