Both the Rolex Datejust II and Rolex 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.
The back of the watches are also screwed down as part of the heritage of the Oyster case style. As is the case with all Rolex watches, the Rolex Datejust II and Rolex Day-Date II casebacks are totally blank, with a simple brushed finish. Comfort is rather excellent, though the larger 41mm wide case size requires a different sort of wearing expectation as the under-part of the case is quite flat, and the case is relatively long. It isn’t less comfortable than the 36mm wide version, but it simply doesn’t wear as snugly on the wrist. Note that these Rolex watches still bear the protective plastic over many of the surfaces as required by dealers on unsold pieces. That also goes with the little bar code on the side of the case that is removed upon purchase.
The Rolex Day Date II begs to differ in a class of its own. Designed to stand alone and above the rest, Rolex has ensured the market that they are here to stay. They are not playing with the style, features looks and designs of an already perfect item. Changes are made to keep current with the times but the internal operation mechanisms are for the most part true natural designs. The luxurious look and design of the presidential model stands out with the sharp blue toned hands of time.
The Rolex- Simply in a League of Its Own, Not to be Outdone, To be Shown, Noticed and most importantly Worn with the Class, Sophistication and Style that only a True Gentlemen would Understand.
