- Technical datas
Founded by the visionary Hans Wilsdorf in the early 1900s, Rolex has continued to excel in various fields. At the forefront of know-how, communication, organization and distribution, the brand decided to focus on wristwatches while fashion was still on pocket watches.
In just a few years, the company has positioned itself as a major player in watchmaking by presenting watches that are precise, water-resistant, robust and reliable.
In 1945, Rolex launches the Datejust model, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch, self-winding movement, chronometer certified, to indicate the date in a window on the dial.
The model presented here is a modern version of the Datejust, a medium size, the reference 68240 from 1984, the first watch to have a sapphire crystal.
It is a stainless steel round case of 31 mm diameter, smooth bezel. Silver dial with applied stick indexes. Date window at 3. Oyster stainless steel bracelet. Self-winding mechanical movement, chronometer certified.
If you wish to acquire what must be the most representative of the Rolex DNA, do not hesitate to choose this mixed model, a precursor and historical model that will be perfect to join your collection of iconic watches.
