The Datejust II is presented here in Rolex signature Rolesor, a unique combination of 904L steel and 18 carat white gold.
In the first models of the Datejust, the day can begin, a few hours before midnight, to change the date. In 1955, the date change mechanism immediately, and the opening was improved with increased Cyclops lens to two and a half time and legible date.

Already in the 1920s, Rolex watches come with a two-tone Bicolore gold box: mostly yellow or red combined with white gold or platinum. In 1933, the combination of gold and steel Rolex was registered under the name Rolesor. Three years after the launch of the Oyster Perpetual in 1945 the model was introduced in Rolesor.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Lady 31mm
If you are still looking for some Christmas presents, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Lady 31mm could be one of your presents.
The watch collection was launched during the Baselworld 2010 industry event. The release of this collection is considered as a good business decision for the Swiss-based watchmaker. The 31mm watch is a good size between 26mm and 36mm watches. It is a hybrid between both as it experiences the best features from each version. It has much slender proportions than those of the smaller watch and does not cost as much as the bigger version. The model is available in three versions that use different materials. There is a combination of steel and yellow gold, gold and steel mix, and the steel and white gold version.
I think the most beautiful version is the model that uses steel and yellow gold for the watchcase and bracelet. It also has a domed yellow gold bezel that has 46 cut diamonds. The model has a silver dial with Roman Numerals that are hand-applied and are made of gold. It also has a gem-set IV Roman numeral found in the 6 o'clock position. However, the model looks a bit oversized with regards to Rolex crown found at 12 o'clock. This makes it an attention grabber. The watch with the Everose version is good to look at except for its chocolate brown dial that looks different from the rest of the model. It seems like the watchmaker has used too much stainless steel here.
The Rolex model is automated by Rolex Caliber 2235 movement along with 31 rubies. The caliber along with its unique design is thicker than the other mechanisms in the watch. It measures 5.95mm in height. Despite its design, the movement is still one of the most accurate in the world which helped it pass the COSC certification tests.
When the seventies rolled along, Rolex began flexing its muscles in the luxury watch market. The Swiss manufacturer made specialized military-oriented precision watches for the Peruvian Air Force and the British Ministry of Defense, as well as regular production models in several materials including white gold, yellow gold, and steel.
This was also the decade when the numerous iterations of the increasingly popular Daytona and Datejust models were produced. In fact, the seventies was the time when the Daytona slowly but surely made the transition from just the Daytona to The Daytona with luminaries in politics, entertainment, and sports seen wearing the legendary watch. Of these Daytona models, the Paul Newman Daytona is arguably one of the most recognizable and valuable, not only because Paul Newman wore it but also because it was so strikingly beautiful with its black outer track running around the dial’s edge and matching the sub-dials.
In 2013, a Paul Newman Rolex with Reference Number 6236 was auctioned for $1 million, one of the most expensive Rolexes ever sold. It was one of the rarest and, by consequence, the most desirable version of the Daytona from both the horological and historical points of view.Caliber 9001 Movement, Display and Dual Time Zones
The Caliber 9001 is the most complicated movement created by Rolex. It is a certified Swiss chronometer, a title given to a select few in the world of high-precision watches. It has features unlike any other wrist watch, and at first glance, it might seem hard to read with the fully-packed display and varying time zones, but as you get used to it, you will soon realize that there’s nothing complicated about reading the time or date using the Sky-Dweller. It was mainly created for those who enjoy travelling as it makes keeping track of both home time and current time easy with its GMT disc feature and an annual calendar. Lady Datejust - The 36mm Datejust model - Oyster Perpetual
In the Sky-Dweller, the second time zone can be read using a rotating disk found at the center of the watch. It has numbers with 24-hour increments, while local time can be read using the 3 hands circling the watch, just like the ones found on any regular watch. The calendar feature on the other hand, is a smart feature that is able to automatically distinguish between months with 30 and 31 days, and only needs to be adjusted once in a year, specifically by the end of February. It would be quite complicated to go in-depth on how the inner mechanism of the watch works, but is the very main reason why the Sky-Dweller is a gem in the world of luxury wristwatches.
