The Datejust 36 is the modern archetype of the classic watch, thanks to aesthetics and functions that transcend changes in fashion. Aesthetically, the Datejust 36 has spanned eras, while retaining the enduring codes that make it, notably in its traditional versions, one of the most recognized and recognizable of watches. The Datejust 36 was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial – hence its name. In the earliest models, the date would begin to change hours before its midnight rendezvous. In 1955, the date-change mechanism was adapted to operate instantaneously and the date aperture was enhanced with a Cyclops lens, magnifying the date for easy reading. The Datejust 36, introduced in 1945, was the first wristwatch to display the date through an aperture on the dial. Its unique magnifying Cyclops eye, added several years later, became recognized as a Rolex standard. Admired for its classic design, the Datejust 36 has become an iconic symbol of style.

Inside the 36 mm stainless steel case is the Rolex Calibre 3135 self-winding automatic movement, the case is water resistant up to 100 meters/330 ft. Beneath the scratch resistant sapphire crystal is a white dial with Roman numeral markers and a date display at 3 o’clock magnified with the Cyclops lens. The dial and crystal are elegantly framed with a stainless steel domed bezel, the screw down crown ensures water resistance. The bracelet is the signature five piece Jubilee design securing on the wrist with the hidden fold over Crownclasp closure.
