In a time where fashion trends from the past are coming back to life, now is the prime time to wear a datejust 36mm. This classic Rolex model first came to life in 1945. With it’s sleek look, smaller 36mm case, date window and jubilee bracelet, it is no wonder this model took off. From the time this model was released, many different variations were introduced, but the one thing that stayed the same was the 36mm case size (up until 2009).
We think the original 36mm is not only a classic look, but the perfect size for both men and women. What we love most about the datejust is whether it is truly vintage or a newer model, it has a vintage look that is truly timeless.
Let's take a look at a few of our favorite Datejust 36mm models:
This model has a steel case with a beautiful white gold fluted bezel. The movement inside is the Cal. 3035. We love the textured dial on this model. This model is offered with a jubilee or oyster bracelet, but we have it pictured on our Everest leather strap. The fluted bezel paired with the leather strap is a beautiful combination that really brings out the vintage style.
This model has a steel case with a yellow gold bezel. We love the white dial with the gold roman numerals. The movement is the Cal. 3135. It has a sapphire crystal. This model is offered with a two tone jubilee or oyster bracelet. We love it on a jubilee bracelet, it gives it the classic datejust look.
The 16030 has a steel case and bezel. The dial is silver. What makes this model different is the steel engine turn bezel. The movement is a cal. 3035. The crystal of this model is plexiglass. It has a steel jubilee bracelet. We love this model because of its cohesiveness with the steel case, bezel, and silver dial.
In all, the datejust is a great Rolex model to own. It is a model that will never go out of style and is great for anyone. Check out our watch straps for the 5 digit datejust here and our straps for the 6 digit datejust here.
