The Rolex Datejust 41mm and it’s Jubillee Oyster Clasp Bracelet.
Baselworld 2016 saw the release of the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41mm. It has a case slightly bigger than the regular gents Datejust at 39mm and the same size as the Datejust II at 41mm. Unlike the classic Datejust and the Datejust II the Datejust 41 is only offered in yellow or Everose Rolesor versions. It has the new Rolex 3235 calibre which is at the forefront of the watchmaking making industry’s technology. In 2015 Rolex introduced a new certification, the Superlative Chronometer certification all of the watches including the Datejust 41 have this certification and are able to keep accurate time to within +/-2 seconds a day. The price ranges from £7950 to £9500.
Available on both Oyster or Jubilee bracelet, one of the notable changes has to be the Jubilee bracelet. The Jubilee bracelet we have come to love with it’s concealed folding clasp (See featured watch image of Rolex Datejust 39mm 116233) has been adapted, instead of being hidden, the new clasp is far from it. Both bracelets are fitted with a folding oyster clasp, which features the Rolex patented Easylink rapid extension system which by almost a flick of a switch allows the wearer to extend the bracelet by up to 5mm. Thus allowing the watch to sit on the wrist more comfortably.
The introduction of the new bracelet could be a sign of things to come, some major changes could be afoot. Do you think Rolex could be about to re-release the Jubilee bracelet on it’s sports watches? Some models have already had the honour of sporting the Jubilee, the GMT for instance. Is it now the turn of the Yacht-Master?
