Case and Dial
The 2018 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 features a slimmer profile slightly , and of course a diameter of 41MM. The case is also highly polished , comprised of the infamous Rolex 904L stainless steel. The sloped 18K fluted bezel sits over the nude sapphire crystal ( No AR Coating ) , while the caseback remains sterile and screwed down for 100M of true tested water resistance. In between the lugs we have a very average 20Mm, which makes this jubilee swappable with any two tone oyster models.
The dial is configured with your typical Rolex applied Lumed stick markers, 18K applied crown logo below 12:00, and your 2.5X magnification over the date window at 3:00. This 126333 is the white dialed version if you have not noticed, and the gold sits nicely alongside this palet. A small detail which is new is the placement of a crown between swiss and made at 6:00.
The Rolex In-House COSC certified and Rolex certified 3255 movement resides inside this beauty, featuring 70 hours of power reserve, blue parachrom anti-magnetic hairspring, and Paraflex shock absorbers. You WILL get around +2 seconds a day guaranteed out of the store with this watch.
The Jubilee bracelet was first introduced in 1945 by Rolex and is a modern day classic. However, these new and improved solid jubilee bracelets are much, much better. The bracelet contains screw links and is comprised of 18K solid yellow gold and 904L steel. The newer bracelets do not stretch nearly as much as the previous ones, and are much more durable. The clasp itself contains a flip lock with a classic Rolex polished millee clasp. Another feature is a slight adjustment underneath the clasp for comfortability if your wrist happens to swell up during the hot months of summer.
The Datejust 41 line is certainly an appealing line for the modern man. First of all, the size difference is definitely
notable when comparing this watch to a generation of older 36MM cases. All of the movement upgrades are definitely shown in this quite expensive price of $12700 retail from an authorized dealer. However, Rolex does produce high quality, accurate, and nearly perfect watches that will last a lifetime if serviced and properly taken care of. For me, I do like this watch enough to reccommend it to my viewers, and I must admit - I am a two-tone guy!
