Introduction to the Rolex Datejust 126334



Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch


When the Rolex Datejust first came on the scene in 1945, it was the first ever watch that was a self-winding, waterproof chronometer that had a date display.  But it wasn’t until 1953 that the date aperture got a cyclops which magnifies the date by 2.5. It has since become one of the most popular Rolexes.  


A closer look at the Datejust 126334 

The Rolex Datejust 126334 is made of a combination of white gold and stainless steel and comes with an eye-catching sunburst blue dial.  The hands are made of stainless steel and the hour and minute hands have an inset of luminosity for easy reading in the dark. 

The fluted bezel is retained from the original 1945 model.  On the Rolex Datejust 126334, it’s made of white gold and catches the light, giving this watch a particularly elegant look. 

The hour markers are batons, except for the Rolex coronet at the 12 location and the date aperture at the 3.  The batons are made of white gold, as it’s less likely to discolour over time, as steel batons sometimes do. 


Why is the Datejust so popular?

This watch is extremely popular because anybody can wear it any time and it will look fantastic, day or evening. 



The case is 41mm and 11.7mm deep, which is quite slim and slides easily under a shirt cuff.  It’s 21mm lug-to-lug, and the endlinks of the jubilee bracelet are pivoted.  This means that they are flexible and fit to the wrist more comfortably than previous versions of this watch. It has the Easylink 5mm adjustment feature for even more customisable and comfortable fitting and security. 



The Datejust 126334 is fitted with a 3235 calibre, just like the Sea-dweller and Submariner. It has an impressive 70-hour power reserve. It’s shock resistant, anti-magnetic and water resistant to 100 metres (330ft).

Is the Rolex Datejust 126334 a good investment?

If you’re buying a Rolex, you’re buying an investment, so it’s good to consider the reference you’re considering with that in mind.  The Rolex market took a slight downturn in the first half of 2022, and the Datejust went down slightly.  However, this is a very popular watch, and demand remains high.  


Recently there have been signs that the watch market has had a correction due to unsustainably high prices.  Now that correction seems to be over, and there is every reason to believe that the Datejust will hold its value at a minimum and, over the long-term, most likely increase in value. 


How to style the Datejust

The Rolex Datejust is a really good everyday watch.  Like every other Rolex watch, the craftsmanship and materials make it extremely robust for everyday life.  At the same time, its elegance dresses up whatever you happen to be wearing, be it a business suit, casual wear or even jeans.  It dresses up perfectly for evening wear. 

Men or women can wear this watch - but the larger case size of 41mm makes it quite a bold piece for a woman to wear.  Jennifer Aniston has been seen wearing this watch, as well as Roger Federer and David Beckham. 


Additional choices for the 126334

Apart from the beautiful sunburst blue dial, there’s a variety of other colours to choose from.  The Slate dial is silver-grey that blends more with the case.  The Silver dial is lighter than the Slate.  It’s also available in Rolex’s gorgeous Mint Green.  

This reference has a Roman numeral option on a White or Azzurro Blue dial.  You can also get the bright blue with a fluted motif which is especially eye-catching.  It’s possible to get this watch with a smooth bezel as well as the Oyster bracelet rather than the Jubilee. 

If you like this reference but want a dressier watch for special occasions, you might like the diamond hour markers. They are available with White, White Mother-of-Pearl, Black, Bright Blue or Slate coloured dials.  



The Rolex Datejust 126334 is a beautiful, strong statement piece that you can wear all day every day.  It’s a good investment for long-term ownership and a timepiece anyone would be proud to own.
