Rolex Watches Datejust II Price
Rolex would likely take issue with the fact that we are reviewing both the Datejust II and Day-Date II watches in the same article. Yes, the watches have an abundance of differences, each with distinct options and features such as dials and bracelets. They also have two completely different movements. Nevertheless, both the Rolex Datejust II and Day-Date II come in the same-sized case, and one that is virtually identical to each other. While the Day-Date II is the ritzier of the two models, the ownership experience between the two is very much the same. For that reason, we apologize in advance to any who would see these two Rolex watches receive separate reviews, but we think the kind of person who likes one will more than likely enjoy the other.
Rolex released the Datejust II and Day-Date II in the last few years. Their purpose was to be larger-sized versions of the classic Datejust and Day-Date. The Day-Date is also often referred to as the Rolex President. Rolex even refers to its bracelet style as the "President bracelet." The Datejust and Day-Date models sold for the last many years were both sized at 36mm wide. For a long time that size was considered sufficient for a man, but over the last decade men have continuously preferred larger watches. Even though no one said it would happen, Rolex buckled under the pressure and began to release larger versions of their classic pieces. Thus, the 41mm wide Datejust and Day-Date models were born, while the 36mm wide versions are actually still produced. The 36mm wide and smaller versions of these Rolex pieces are mostly typically preferred by women these days.
Both the Datejust II and Day-Date II watches come with Rolex's Oyster case. The original water resistant watch, Rolex's famous trademark case style has a screw-down crown and is water resistant to 100 meters. Aside from being larger than its 36mm wide predecessor, the 41mm wide version isn't really very different. At 41mm wide it wears large given the wide lug structures and relatively wide bracelets.
