    ~ History ~

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust is an officially certified, self-winding chronometer wristwatch manufactured by Rolex. When it was launched in 1945, the Datejust was the first wristwatch with a date function. The Datejust is offered with two classic Rolex bracelets: the jubilee and the oyster. The original Datejust was launched with a bezel size of 36mm. Later, however, ladies and mid-sized versions became available. The Turn-o-Graph model was introduced in 1955 as an award given to US Air Force pilots returning from combat missions. It featured a rotating bezel marked to 60 minutes, which can be used to measure time intervals. Datejusts of this type have been nicknamed "Thunderbirds". Chuck Yeager wore one of these models when he broke the sound barrier. This would be the basis for the Rolex Explorer (designed for Sir Edmund Hilary's Mount Everest expedition), the Rolex Submariner, and the Rolex Sea Dweller.

    The standard men's Datejust is available in steel; steel with white, yellow or everose gold; or yellow gold.
    In 2009, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust II was released. Its case is bigger than the standard Datejust and it also features an updated movement. The men's size is 41mm diameter and it is presently only available in steel with white, yellow or rose gold on an Oyster bracelet.

    Thanks he sent me this due to a communication error (I asked for a 41mm but sent him a pic of 36 mm) so he sent me a 36mm
    He instantly said he would send me another (41mm) I'll post pics of this as soon as it comes ;)

    Great work. How accurate are the fluted bezel 36mm Datejust I's? I'm considering buying an all silver stick dial model, but can't find info on their accuracy.
