They pursue a new lifestyle, an active lifestyle but no less aristocratic than the previous generation. Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, understands this well: the modern woman wants to manage her time to control her destiny. Like gentlemen, they also demand precision.
On that basis, in 1957, Rolex’s classic women’s watch was born: the Lady-Datejust. A watch of smaller proportions created based on unchanged standards of perfection.

With this innovation, the brand has overcome the technical limitations of the case size and obtained COSC chronometer certification for the impressively small model.

An irreplaceable creation that combines elegance and precision on the wrist of the modern, graceful and accomplished woman. A symbol of assertiveness in an enchanting feminine silhouette.
Bearing the hallmarks of watchmaking’s decades of innovation, the Lady-Datejust has established itself as the perfect ladies’ classic watch: a product of professional engineering for Women who believe in themselves.
Chosen by determined, steadfast women on their journey to impressive achievements, the Lady-Datejust shines on the wrists of marine biologist Sylvia Earle, golf champion Annika Sörenstam and singer Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. As pioneers in their respective fields, each has created a new portrait of femininity: busy, modern, and always in pursuit of perfection.
Inspired by the legacy of these women, the next generation is also bringing new life to different fields. These are the genius pianist Yuja Wang, tennis champion Garbiñe Muguruza, biologist Emma Camp with her efforts to protect coral reefs, and the skillful sitar player Anoushka Shankar, all of whom are women. These women are all new faces representing contemporary feminine beauty.
The Lady-Datejust Oyster watch case, measuring 28 mm in diameter, and guaranteed to be waterproof to 100 meters, is a symbol of strength and elegance. The watch case is crafted from solid Oystersteel, a special alloy that resists corrosion, or from 18 ct yellow gold.

The Lady-Datejust is powered by caliber 2236, a self-winding mechanical movement developed and manufactured entirely by Rolex. A perfect demonstration of the technology, this movement holds numerous patents. It offers outstanding performance in terms of accuracy, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience, and reliability.
Caliber 2236’s oscillator features a variable-inertia balance wheel that is adjusted extremely precisely through gold Microstella nuts. It is held in place by a height-adjustable horizontal bridge that allows very stable positioning for increased shock resistance. The oscillator is also fitted on a high-performance Paraflex shock absorber, designed and patented by Rolex.
Caliber 2236 is equipped with a self-winding module via the Perpetual rotor, which ensures constant winding by wrist movements for a constant supply of power. This movement offers a power reserve of up to 55 hours.
Only certified Rolex watchmakers can see the Lady-Datejust movement. However, it is still beautifully finished based on the indispensable quality standards of the brand.
Caliber 2236 incorporates a silicon Syloxi hairspring, patented and manufactured by Rolex. Without oscillating before a magnetic field, the Syloxi filament produces excellent stability in the face of temperature variations and remains 10 times more accurate than a traditional filament in the event of an impact.
The Syloxi hairspring in the caliber 2236 movement is shaped to help ensure a steady movement in every position. It also includes a paramagnetic nickel-phosphorus escape wheel.

Depending on the source, they can be pink, white, black, or yellow. They vary in color, luminosity, and texture depending on the part of the peel extracted.
