Rolex, ever the forerunner of technology, released the advanced Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust in 1945, coinciding with the 40th Anniversary of the Rolex Company. The Datejust was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a small window at 3 o’clock on the dial. Its unique magnifying Cyclops eye, added several years later, increased legibility by two and half times, and soon came to be recognized as a Rolex standard. The Datejust has been admired for its classic design and appearance, which has only been slightly altered over the years, thus has become an iconic symbol of style.
