Rolex Datejust Two-Tone 'Bullseye'

Rolex Datejust Two-Tone 'Bullseye'

Why We Love it

The Rolex Datejust is a watch that needs no introduction...

The so-called “six-digit” Datejusts (reference variants with six digits) evolved from the original Oyster Perpetual Datejust line, and now exist as the contemporary standard for the line.

These models showed up in the early 2000s and offer updated cases and bracelets, while still retaining the classic 36mm case proportion of their predecessors and have similar variation for dial, bezel, and bracelet configurations.

This particular example, a Reference 116233, features a two-tone 18k yellow gold and stainless steel Oyster case with matching solid link Jubilee bracelet, a stunning and flawless multi-tone bullseye dial with applied luminous yellow gold bâton indices, a desirable roulette date wheel, and a matching yellow gold handset and 18k fluted bezel. This piece also comes with its papers dating to circa 2007.

These timepieces are incredibly usable for everyday use, and can easily be dressed-up for formal occasions or dressed-down and worn as a sporty everyday companion.

The Datejust Story

We've said it over and over again - the Datejust may just be the perfect watch.

Coupling perfect proportions, simple dial layouts, and robust movements, Rolex's most prolific model is an icon of timekeeping that has been in continuous production for decades. Moreover, the Datejust is all the watch that just about any of us really need

The beauty of the Datejust is that it is the ultimate do-anything, go-anywhere watch. Equal parts sporty and dressy, the Datejust wears just as well with jeans as it does with a suit, and thanks to the signature Oyster case and tough-as-nails movement, it’s ready for anything that you can throw at it.

In production continuously since 1945, the original Datejust was the world's first wristwatch to incorporate a date disc and aperture at the 3:00 position. Since then, date windows at 3:00 have become commonplace, and the Rolex cyclops magnifier bubble has become a hallmark of the brand. Datejusts have proudly been worn by presidents, athletes and movie stars (and probably your grandfather), in a testament to how timeless and versatile the watch truly is.

While recent horological trends have favored larger sporty wristwatches, the age of the giant watch is drawing to a close, making more reasonably sized watches like the original Datejust, a pleasantly stylish option that fits the bill in every setting.

There's a magic to the Datejust's simple design, a timelessness that proves that true style never dies.
