Just as the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust has served as the reference point for luxury wristwatches, ever since its introduction more than 75 years ago, the smaller-diameter models in the Datejust collection have long defined the enduring elegance of what a classic ladies’ timepiece should be.
Instantly recognisable by its “Cyclops” date lens at the 3 o’clock position, the women’s Datejust 31 comes in a range of materials, dial colours and finishes, as well as bezel, bracelet and jewellery options. And for 2022, this timelessly feminine collection has been augmented by three stunning new references, all of which feature new dials with a striking motif of 24 flowers, which stand out from each other thanks to sunray, matte and grained finishes.
The first, in Rolesor – Rolex’s signature combination of Oystersteel and gold – and features its case and outer Oyster bracelet links in stainless steel, with fluted bezel, crown and central bracelet links in white gold. The Azzurro blue dial is set with 24 diamonds, with white gold hands and gem-settings. Next comes a version in full yellow gold on a three-piece President bracelet, whose bezel is set with 46 brilliant-cut diamonds. The effect is completed by an olive-green gloss dial set with 24 diamonds; the gem-settings and hands are in yellow gold.
The third in the trio is a new reference in Everose Rolesor, on a five-link Jubilee bracelet. Here the case and bracelet outer links are in stainless steel, with bezel, crown and central bracelet links in Everose (pink) gold; 46 brilliant-cut diamonds adorn the bezel, while a further 24 diamonds on the dial are set in Everose, which is also used for the hands.
As with all current Rolex watches, these new additions to the Datejust 31 line are powered by self-winding 2236 calibres of advanced technical sophistication. Each features a silicon hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers, and provides the highest Superlative Chronometer standards of accuracy and a reserve of around 55 hours.
Adhering faithfully to legacy stretching back through the decades, these new ladies’ timepieces from Rolex provide today’s woman with an unmistakeable dash of classic glamour on the wrist, while ensuring peerless accuracy and reliability, day in and day out, no matter how energetic or active her lifestyle may be.
