Rolex introduced the original Datejust (reference 4467)in 1945 to celebrate the company's 40th anniversary. It also featured the company's waterproof Oyster case (first introduced in 1926, a fluted bezel, and the new Jubilee bracelet (so named for the occasion).
Over the years, the Datejust movement went through subtle improvements to its features and an expansion of design options. Several years after its debut, In 1954, Rolex added the now famous Cyclops lens as a major update.
The Datejust is offered with two classic Rolex bracelets: the Jubilee and the Oyster. The classic Datejust was launched with a case size of 36mm.
Though there has been a general trend toward larger sized watches from 2001, spurring Rolex to increase the size of the Datejust in 2009, there is some belief that watch sizes are on the decrease.
Rolex still advertises the current 36mm Datejust as a regular size men's watch and many purists believe it is the standard and indeed shall always remain the classic Rolex.
The Datejust model is an utterly timeless Rolex classic that has stood the test of time both from a fashion and from an investment viewpoint.
