In 1955, the date-change mechanism was adapted to operate instantaneously and the date aperture was enhanced with a Cyclops lens that magnifies the date for easy reading. 5 Spirit of the Pearlmaster 29 HISTORY OF THE DATEJUST The Datejust, 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 recognised as a Rolex standard. Admired for its classic design, the Datejust has become an iconic symbol of style. 6 Features ROLEX GEMS Rolex uses only the finest rubies, sapphires and emeralds to adorn its watches, and employs exceptionally demanding selection criteria. Each stone is meticulously examined by the in-house gemmologists for quality and authenticity. Since these coloured gemstones form naturally in the earth in a varied palette of colours, they are sorted by hand, stone by stone, to ensure that all the gems on a given watch are of the same hue. At Rolex, time and precision are ingredients of beauty. 7 Features PEARLMASTER BRACELET Both sensual and sophisticated, this metal bracelet with rounded five-piece links was created in 1992 for the launch of the Pearlmaster model. The Pearlmaster bracelet is always fitted with a Crownclasp. 8 Features 18 CT GOLD By operating its own exclusive foundry, Rolex has the unrivalled ability to cast the highest quality 18 ct gold alloys. According to the proportion of silver, copper, platinum or palladium added, different types of 18 ct gold are obtained: yellow, pink or white. They are made with only the purest metals and meticulously inspected in an in-house laboratory with state-ofthe-art equipment, before the gold is formed and shaped with same painstaking attention to quality. Rolex's commitment to excellence begins at the source. 9 Features 2235 MOVEMENT Calibre 2235 is a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 2235 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable. 11 Features SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER The green seal accompanying every Rolex watch is a symbol of its status as a Superlative Chronometer. This exclusive designation attests that it has successfully undergone a series of specific final controls by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria, in addition to the official COSC certification of its movement. This unique testing of the chronometric precision of the cased-up movement, as well as of the watch’s waterproofness, self-winding and power reserve, pushes back the boundaries of performance and makes Rolex the benchmark for excellence in mechanical watches. The green seal is coupled with a five‑year guarantee which applies to all Rolex models. 12 Where to buy a Rolex THE OFFICIAL ROLEX RETAILER Only official Rolex retailers, distinguishable by this official green plaque, are allowed to sell and maintain a Rolex.
