ROLEX New Oyster Perpetual DATEJUST in 18 ct EVEROSE Gold Ref 116285 BBR – 73605

A sublime feminine variation, a new jewelled interpretation of the 36 mm Oyster Perpetual DATEJUST in 18 ct EVEROSE gold bears a black lacquer dial with a contemporary motif set with 262 diamonds, providing an entrancing contrast of light and shadow. Its bezel is set with 60 baguette-cut diamonds, and 120 brilliant-cut diamonds around the edge. The 18 ct EVEROSE gold, an exclusive alloy created by Rolex and cast in its own foundry, shines with a unique brilliance and is distinguished by an incomparable hue resulting from the addition of a touch of platinum.

The pink gold dial of this resolutely feminine DATEJUST is finished with a contemporary black lacquer motif and 262 set diamonds, which make for a stunning contrast. Ten diamonds in pink gold settings mark the hours with shimmering splendour. The bezel bears 60 baguette-cut diamonds – one for each second – and, just as delicately set, 120 brilliant-cut diamonds on its edge.

The 18 ct EVEROSE gold of the OYSTER case and bracelet is alloyed by Rolex in its own foundry before being shaped in the brand’s workshops. The incomparably warm tone of this exclusive pink gold alloy developed by Rolex is heightened by the addition of a touch of platinum. Its unique lustre is the result of the extreme care with which it is shaped, machined and finally polished.

The DATEJUST’s 36 mm OYSTER case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of proportion and elegance. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct gold. The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Rolex watchmakers. The winding crown, fitted with the patented TWINLOCK double waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case. The crystal, with a CYCLOPS lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of virtually scratchproof synthetic sapphire. The waterproof OYSTER case allies refinement with efficiency in protecting the DATEJUST’s high-precision movement.

The DATEJUST is equipped with calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all PERPETUAL movements, the 3135 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its architecture, like that of all OYSTER watch movements, makes it singularly precise and reliable. The oscillator, the true heart of the watch, has a blue PARACHROM hairspring patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive alloy. Insensitive to magnetic fields, the PARACHROM hairspring offers great stability when exposed to temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks.

The new DATEJUST model is fitted with an 18 ct EVEROSE gold OYSTER bracelet with a concealed folding CROWNCLASP. Developed and patented by Rolex, this elegant solid-link bracelet offers remarkable comfort and ease of use.
