A History Of Rolex Date Just Replica Watch

Both the Submariner and the Daytona really are magnificent watches when new and prime examples of how Swiss Rolex Replica  cares about its heritage. But there is one other model that symbolises the company even more so than the most recognisable diving watch in the world, the Rolex Date Just replica watch.

The year was 1945, Rolex's 40th anniversary of operation after its founding by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London in the year 1905. With the exception of the chronograph and some calendar complications, the watch market was flooded mostly with three-handed watches, three really was the magic number for most.


Rolex identified a way to add a pseudo-calendar function, a date wheel, which would automatically advance forward at midnight, making the new Rolex replica watch a piece where the date was always just. Rolex also decided that this wasn’t enough for their new watch, so then they added in their Oyster waterproof case and their automatic movement. This made the Rolex DateJust replica watch the first automatic winding watch to use a date wheel.


They didn’t stop there, though. The first Rolex DateJust replica watch came in yellow gold with a coin style applied to it, as opposed to the usual fluted design that we know and love today. Another signature touch of the DateJust, and indeed other Rolex watches too, is the cyclops magnifying lens over the date, this was introduced to the DateJust watch in 1954, 9 years after the watch was launched. Along with the cyclops came new editions of the DateJust, made of rose gold, two tone metals and all steel.

The Rolex replica watch then improved again a while later to make it into the Rolex DateJust replica watch we know and love today. You’ll also find the new DateJust II line to be very appealing if you like a larger sized watch with a slightly more sporty look to it as well.


The Rolex DateJust replica watch is well known for coming in an almost unlimited variety of designs with the most popular being the steel/yellow gold variant. I still believe the 36mm DateJust is a better-looking watch and the Jubilee bracelet is unbelievable, but a lot of us like our dress/sports watches to be a bit more sporty. With a 100m water resistant case, a screw down crown and a choice of a Jubilee or Oyster bracelet, the Rolex DateJust was and always will be the quintessential daily wear.
