Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 16013

The Datejust is one of the earliest models that survives today and provides a perfect lens through which to examine why Rolex is, well, Rolex.
The very first Datejust was released in 1945 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rolex corporation. It was unveiled at a jubilee celebration (hence the name of the new bracelet that accompanied the watch from day-one) held at the Hotel des Bergues in Geneva by Wilsdorf himself (now the Four Seasons and the site of such legendary Christie’s sales as Rolex Daytona: Lesson One). It was the very first automatic wristwatch with an automatically changing date window. This is a feature that anyone with a watch takes completely for granted today, but in the 40s it was game-changing.

For those who don’t know, Rolex basically has two categories of their watches. The Oyster Professional lines (Submariner, Sea-Dweller, GMT Master II, etc.) and the Oyster Perpetual line (the Datejust, Day-Date, etc.). People often write and ask me why there’s so much information out there on Submariners, Daytonas, and GMT Masters, but very little written about the Datejust and Day-Date models. Historically, the Oyster Professional watches were purchased by a younger, more active demographic, while the Datejust and Day-Date models are more associated with an older demographic. Since it’s that younger generation that’s most active on the Internet, you see much more written about the Oyster Professional watches, than the Oyster Perpetual models. But don’t let what you read on the Internet skew your perception of reality. Most experts agree that it’s the Datejust, and not the much celebrated-on-the-web Submariner, which is Rolex’s best selling model.
The Datejust was first introduced back in 1945, and the design was updated in the 1970’s and has changed very little since.
