Rolex Datejust Ref. 126234 - Palm Motif Dial
Hard to believe - but the Datejust has been around since 1945. It is far older than its bigger and attention-hogging Submariner brethren. The Datejust was Rolex’s idea of the perfect everyday watch. The robustness of the Oyster case, combined with the elegance of an Oyster Perpetual. Early Datejusts were available as the 1601 - with a fluted white gold bezel, or the 1603 - with an engine turned steel bezel. They are also the first Datejusts to become available in a myriad of colors and styles.
Fast forward to the modern era, and that those styles and color-ways have only multiplied. In addition to the white gold bezel, you can now have a smooth bezel, or a variety of gemset bezels from the factory, and the dial options these days are seemingly endless.
That brings us to the present Datejust which features one of the newest dial variants, the ‘Palm Dial Motif’ as Rolex calls it. This design made its big screen debut at Watches & Wonders just one year ago - and quickly became a hypebeast favorite. This watch is in exceptional condition overall and comes from that first year of production with all boxes, papers, and goodies you would expect from a brand new watch.
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting
