Today, the Lady-Datejust features every metal finish in the Rolex catalog, including Oyster steel, Everrose gold, yellow gold, platinum, and two-tone (Rolesor). The latter is the term Rolex uses to describe the use of both stainless steel and yellow gold components on a single watch, and Rolex offers the Rolesor model with all three colors of 18-carat gold (yellow, white, and pink).   Lady Rolex Datejust
The Lady-Datejust also comes in a myriad of bezels, straps, and dial configurations. At one end of the spectrum, the Lady-Datejust can be found with diamond drops, while the other end of the catalog contains all-steel models with simple smooth bezels and Oyster bracelets. the Datejust is Rolex’s most diverse watch collection, and it is often said that there is a replica Rolex Datejust on every possible wrist.
Rolex is constantly evolving and catering to the ever-changing trends in watches. The brand owes much of its success to its ability to adapt while maintaining the core design of its pillar models. Rolex has a near-unparalleled ability to stay on trend while respecting its renowned design philosophy. One example of this is the subtle advancement of the Oyster case in the Lady-Datejust collection.
The Lady-Datejust ref. 279160 is an entry-level option featuring a full Oystersteel (904L stainless steel) finish. It is currently in production and features a smooth bezel and either a Jubilee band with a concealed crown clasp or an Oyster strap with a standard Oysterclasp. Dial options include white, silver, dark gray, or pink. It’s hard to deny the versatility of the Oyster Steel Lady-Datejust, and its relatively affordable price makes it a popular choice for many contemporary Rolex collectors.
Averroes is a relatively new metal choice in the Rolex catalog, having only been added in 2005. It uses a proprietary blend of 18-carat rose gold forged in-house at Rolex’s own foundry and is right in line with current trends in watch tastes. Collectors of all generations, lifestyles, and professions have chosen this metal over white or yellow gold for its new interpretation of the iconic Datejust. Pair its distinctive warm hue with stainless steel (known as “Everose Rolesor”) and the result is an incredibly versatile version of the Lady-Datejust that looks great when stacked with other bracelets or simply worn on itself.
