Arguably one of the most quintessential references of Rolex’s offering since its development, the Datejust remains as an iconic, influential and elegant series - the first Rolex with an automatic date function. The Datejust has screened numerous appearances in movies and sports perhaps due to its proportion, quality and price. Over the years Rolex has undoubtedly become a synonymous partner with the most competitive and elite sporting events ie. Grand Slam of Show Jumping, Australia Open, Formula 1 and encouraged the legacy of the most challenging and daring players to date - where the Datejust has appealed as a universal watch among all occasions.
Following the revival of integrated sports watches in the 1980s, the combination between gold and steel is prominent across major horological houses with the Datejust being no-exception. The two-tone execution emerges as a favorite selection among Asia retailers and dealers across most series ie. Submariner, GMT Master, Datejust, Nautilus, Royal Oak and 222 etc with presence across movies, dramas, music and sports as featured in the oyster booklets and advertisements.
The rarity and collectibility of neo-vintage Datejust are valued mainly by its dial configurations ie. Linen, Tapestry, Stone, Buckley, Ghost etc. with numerous configurations worth gathering. This particular example speaks of a clean pyramid pattern in beige tone with sharp lugs as sharp lugs. The white-beige pyramid dial constantly retracts and reflects light in an ever-flowing motion where every small motion would spread its sheen and glow. Bracelet walks sharp and tight as well. The two-tone setting is an all-time-classic further boosted by the vertical stripes with a seemingly disappearing stripe pattern revolving between each stripe, sealing off with original parts. The reaction between light and shadow is truly spectacular on this dial which gives off a highly contrasting appeal with strong wrist presence, truly unisex piece with timelessness and grace.
This is certainly one of the less common iterations known to exist and the chances of finding impeccable condition with full accessories are not usual. It is definitely a collector's opportunity to acquire this gem.
