Rolex Datejust vintage watches: an all-time classic from CHRONEXT
The Rolex Datejust (reference number 4467) was originally launched in 1945, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Rolex company. It's for this reason that its distinctive bracelet is known as the “Jubilee” band. Meanwhile, the Datejust was so called because it was the first wristwatch whose date automatically changed at midnight.
If you place a vintage Rolex Datejust from the 1940s next to a brand new model, you can immediately see the strong family resemblance between the two. But it's equally fascinating to observe how the design has changed over the years. For example, the date magnifier – one of Rolex's signature touches – only appeared on the Datejust in 1954.
At CHRONEXT you'll find numerous fantastic examples of Rolex Datejust vintage models from different eras. And you'll benefit not only from our competitive second hand prices, but also from the two-year CHRONEXT guarantee that all of our watches receive after an extensive authenticity and functionality check in our master workshop.
