Having a date indicator on a watch is taken for granted these days, but before 1945, the concept didn't exist at all—that is until Rolex added a simple, yet game-changing element to their famous Oyster watch: the date window. This small aperture changed the role of wristwatches from then on, from mere timekeeping devices to calendars as well. The Datejust was (and is) known for its classic elegance—the watch is striking in its magnificent, minimalist beauty. Many of these timepieces feature dials or cases made with rare and exquisite materials, which only adds to their graceful and luxurious reputation.
