MAKE : Rolex
Model No : Lady-DateJust(OYSTER PERPETUAL)
The Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust combines the prestigious elegance of a ladies watch with the most exclusive materials. It is available in Rolesor, platinum, or 18ct yellow or white gold.
The unique hue of Rolex Everose gold works in perfect harmony with the solid steel to lend a specific personality to the Rolesor watch. In the 18ct Everose gold alloy developed by Rolex, a touch of platinum is added to lock in the copper, and thus the colour. Its enduring beauty is a true delight.
On the Goldust dial, beautiful mother of pearl meets state-of-the-art technology. The dial is sprayed with a fine layer of gold or platinum using an exclusive patented Rolex process. Ultimate elegance: the mother of pearl shines through the noble metal.
In pursuit of perfection, Rolex makes its gold in its own foundry. It has the autonomy to apply the most rigorous standards and the freedom to create new alloys. Its yellow, white and Everose gold are timeless symbols of prestige and luxury.
At midnight, the Rolex calendar instantly jumps to the next date. This ingenious mechanism was introduced in 1945 on the Oyster Perpetual Datejust and assures perfect accuracy of the movement during the date change which is triggered using stored energy.
Only a robust corrosion-resistant, stainless-steel alloy can meet the uncompromising tandards of Rolex. It, therefore, uses a unique composition of 904L steel, which can withstand the harshest environments, from the highest peaks to the depths of the ocean. Rolex 904L steel can be polished to achieve an impeccable finish, contributing to the Oysters characteristic beauty.
Crafted from a solid block of stainless steel, gold or platinum, the Oyster case undergoes more than 150 manufacturing steps. A miniature safe, it ensures absolute waterproofness and protects the Rolex movement under the most extreme conditions.
Waterproofness is at the heart of the Rolex identity. Rolex invented the first waterproof watch, the Oyster, in 1926. Each Oyster is waterproof down to 100 metres/330 feet and is submitted to rigorous testing to ensure waterproofness beyond its guaranteed depth. Models created for divers symbolise the supremacy of Rolex waterproofness at even greater depths.
Rolex watches have conquered seas and oceans. A strong and privileged association with water is evident throughout the collection.
In 1931, Rolex invented and patented the Perpetual rotor, the worlds first self-winding wristwatch mechanism. The Perpetual rotor allows the watch to run continuously as every flick of the wrist winds the movement. The energy generated is stored in the mainspring, which ensures an autonomy of 48 to 72 hours, depending on the model.
The height of precision, the self-winding Oyster movement is entirely engineered and manufactured by Rolex. Robust and reliable, every movement guarantees long-term high performance and is an officially certified Swiss chronometer.
Each Rolex movement is submitted to rigorous testing by COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), an independent organisation. For 15 days and 15 nights, each movement is tested in five different positions and subjected to three different temperatures. To be certified as a Swiss chronometer, the movement must successfully pass the COSC testing.
