Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 16013
The Datejust is one of the earliest models that survives today and provides a perfect lens through which to examine why Rolex is, well, Rolex.
For those who don’t know, Rolex basically has two categories of their watches. The Oyster Professional lines (Submariner, Sea-Dweller, GMT Master II, etc.) and the Oyster Perpetual line (the Datejust, Day-Date, etc.). People often write and ask me why there’s so much information out there on Submariners, Daytonas, and GMT Masters, but very little written about the Datejust and Day-Date models. Historically, the Oyster Professional watches were purchased by a younger, more active demographic, while the Datejust and Day-Date models are more associated with an older demographic. Since it’s that younger generation that’s most active on the Internet, you see much more written about the Oyster Professional watches, than the Oyster Perpetual models. But don’t let what you read on the Internet skew your perception of reality. Most experts agree that it’s the Datejust, and not the much celebrated-on-the-web Submariner, which is Rolex’s best selling model.
