Rolex Datejust Vintage Watches


Rolex Datejust vintage watches for newcomers and aficionados

The Rolex Datejust isn't only the oldest model from the Rolex collection, it's also the most versatile. The watch combines luxuriousness with understatement, sportiness with elegance. With a history stretching back over 75 years, Rolex Datejust vintage models are readily available, making them the perfect choice for collectors and first-time buyers alike. And the best place to get a great deal on a vintage Rolex Datejust is CHRONEXT.

Rolex Datejust vintage watches: an all-time classic from CHRONEXT

The Rolex Datejust (reference number 4467) was originally launched in 1945, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Rolex company. It's for this reason that its distinctive bracelet is known as the “Jubilee” band. Meanwhile, the Datejust was so called because it was the first wristwatch whose date automatically changed at midnight.

If you place a vintage Rolex Datejust from the 1940s next to a brand new model, you can immediately see the strong family resemblance between the two. But it's equally fascinating to observe how the design has changed over the years. For example, the date magnifier – one of Rolex's signature touches – only appeared on the Datejust in 1954.

At CHRONEXT you'll find numerous fantastic examples of Rolex Datejust vintage models from different eras. And you'll benefit not only from our competitive second hand prices, but also from the two-year CHRONEXT guarantee that all of our watches receive after an extensive authenticity and functionality check in our master workshop.

Rolex Datejust and Datejust vintage models in detail

What was once planned as an anniversary model quickly developed into the brand's greatest classic. The first Rolex Datejust vintage models up to 1978 had four digit reference numbers. Then in 1979 came the five digit reference number range, complete with a quick set option. In 2006, Rolex launched the six digit reference generation.

If you're keen to own a Rolex Datejust vintage model, you're in luck, as it's the Rolex model with the most design options. Between the 1970s and 1990s, for example, there were many Rolex Datejust two tone models – which are now thoroughly back in fashion again, making them a great buy. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust vintage editions are an impressive high performance option. Then there are timeless classics like the Datejust 36 mm, or the Rolex Datejust 28mm vintage watch for more slender wrists.

Rolex Datejust vintage watches come with countless design options

The four and five digit reference models that are considered vintage offer the following options:

  • Different materials: stainless steel, bi-color or solid gold
  • Five sizes: 26, 28, 31, 34 and 36 mm diameters
  • Different bezels: smooth or corrugated
  • Bracelet variants: Jubilee or oyster bracelet (or leather)
  • Numerous dial options in terms of colours, hour markers and gemstone trim
  • A special model: Rolex Datejust vintage gold watches

While current Datejust models are only available in solid gold up to a diameter of 31 mm, Rolex Datejust Datejust vintage watches offer a choice of larger diameters too. At the moment, the price-performance ratio for Rolex Datejust vintage gold models is still very reasonable, especially considering the quantity of precious metal involved in their manufacture. However, there is every possibility that this could change in the future. So if you're looking for a Rolex Datejust vintage watch in solid gold, it's wise to strike promptly.
