A good friend of mine recently turned me on to the Rolex Datejust. My watches are all 40mm+, and all would measure on the ‘bulky’ side. Honestly I like a bigger watch, but I’ve developed a fondness for the Datejust. I really like the elegance and simplicity of the watch. And the 36mm size would be a nice break from my larger lineup. They also look great with either a metal bracelet or a leather strap. The price point is good for a Rolex, especially on the used market.
In terms of the style, I like them all. The silver case/silver face is classic, but the all gold is great as well (Mrs. RCS would steal that one from me). The two tone will never go out of style, and the alt faces (green/blue) are handsome. Overall, I think I’d choose the silver case with the black face. Again, I don’t think you can go wrong. Here is a rundown of some great examples:
Which one is your favorite?
