Diamonds have long been associated with luxury, with their beauty and radiance making them some of the most coveted gemstones on the planet. It makes sense, then, that one of the world’s most prestigious brands would use diamonds in its new releases unveiled at Watches and Wonders. Rolex gemmologists and gem-setters have worked in harmony to create the new additions to the Lady-Datejust range.
The classic Rolex feminine watch, the Lady-Datejust benefits from all the attributes of the Datejust, the emblematic Rolex watch that has been a byword for style and technical performance ever since its launch in 1945. The women’s version of this date chronometer, the Lady-Datejust, which appeared in 1957, carries the elegance of the Datejust in a small 28 mm size perfectly suited to a slender wrist
Rolex is presenting a new gem-set version of its Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust. This watch, crafted from 18 ct yellow gold, showcases the captivating shine of the diamonds that adorn every surface.
