Baselworld 2019 – Rolex Datejust 36

Rolex Datejust 36 Ref. 126234-0015 - Mamic 1970

Rolex is introducing two new variants of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 both white Rolesor version, combining Oystersteel and 18 ct white gold.

ROLEX DATEJUST 36

The first version has a refined, black sunray-finish dial and fluted bezel, while the second combines a white mother-of-pearl dial with 10 diamond hour markers in 18 ct white gold settings and a bezel set with 52 brilliant-cut diamonds. The light reflections on the case sides and lugs highlight the elegant profile of the 36 mm Oyster case.

TIMELESS STYLE

Rolex’s Datejust is the archetype of the classic watch thanks to functions and aesthetics that never go out of fashion. Launched in 1945, it was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial, and consolidated all the major innovations that Rolex had contributed to the modern wristwatch until then. The Datejust has spanned eras while retaining the enduring aesthetic codes that make it so instantly recognizable.

ROLESOR, A MARRIAGE OF GOLD AND OYSTERSTEEL

Rolesor, the combination of gold and steel on a Rolex watch, has been a signature feature of the brand since 1933, when the name was registered. It is a meeting of two metals: one, noble and precious, attractive for its lustre and stability; the other, highly resistant, known for its strength and reliability. All of these qualities perfectly mirror the elegance and performance that come together in a Rolex watch. On the new white Rolesor versions of the Datejust 36, the bezel is made of 18 ct white gold, while the crown, middle case, bracelet and clasp are in Oystersteel.

Rolesor is the combination of two metals: noble and precious gold, attractive for its lustre and stability; and steel known for its resistance to corrosion, ensures strength and reliability.

JUBILEE AND OYSTER BRACELETS

One of the new white Rolesor versions of the Datejust 36 is fitted with a Jubilee bracelet, the other with an Oyster bracelet. Supple and comfortable, the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet was specially created for the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust in 1945. The Oyster bracelet, introduced in the late 1930s, is a particularly robust metal bracelet with three-piece links.

Both bracelets are fitted with a folding Oysterclasp and include the Easylink comfort extension link, developed by Rolex, that allows the wearer to easily adjust the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm.

A concealed attachment system ensures seamless visual continuity between the bracelet and case.

These white Rolesor versions of the Datejust 36 are fitted with an Oyster or Jubilee bracelet.

PERPETUAL CALIBRE 3235

The new versions of the Datejust 36 are equipped with calibre 3235, a new-generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. A consummate demonstration of technology, at the forefront of the art of watchmaking, this self-winding mechanical movement led to the filing of several patents and offers fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability.

Calibre 3235 is equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor. Thanks to its barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3235 extends to approximately 70 hours.

Calibre 3235 offers a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.

SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER CERTIFICATION 

Like all Rolex watches, each Datejust is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive designation testifies that every watch leaving the brand’s workshops has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria. These certification tests apply to the fully assembled watch, after casing the movement, guaranteeing superlative performance on the wrist in terms of precision, power reserve, waterproofness and self-winding. The precision of a Rolex Superlative Chronometer is of the order of −2/+2 seconds per day, or more than twice that required of an official chronometer.

The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.
