Watchuwant is now WatchBox! Subscribe for the best luxury watch content. Rolex Datejust II Black Dial, Roman Markers Review - Reference 116334 The Rolex Datejust is timeless. The Rolex Datejust II is timeless and timely at the same time. OK, *time* for an explanation. Rolex's Datejust II is the 2009-present update of the classic new-for-1946 Oyster Perpetual Datejust. The DJII combines the essential lines of the original Datejust, its automatic movement, and the magnified "jump" date with a 41mm case that can go blow-for-blow with larger modern luxury watches. This stainless steel and 18-karat white gold (White Rolesor) Rolex Datejust II 116334 demonstrates just how versatile the Datejust II lineup can be. While I've reviewed Datejust II models before, a quick look at the previous videos demonstrates just how greatly the look and character of this watch varies between references. The best models from Rolex nail their basic proportions in the design phase then offer collectors a broad range of materials, colors, bezels, numerals, bracelets, and dials to tailor their dream watches. With a Rolesor gold/steel combo, a fluted bezel, matte slate-colored dial, and black Roman numerals (vividly outlined in silver paint), this Datejust II 116334 cuts a sporty and versatile profile. At 41mm, the Datejust II boasts more wrist presence than the 36mm Datejust or the related 35mm Rolex Date. The DJII has the dial real estate to carry full Arabic numerals and a "Cyclops Eye" date magnifier without appearing crowded. The result is an imposing look that never becomes busy or imbalanced. Light metal and a dark dial is the classic power combo on a luxury watch, and the addition of full Roman numerals gives this Datejust II the visual impact to punch way above its weight. Forget Omega and Breitling: this Datejust II is gunning for Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks, Patek Philippe Calatravas, and Cartiers of all descriptions. Inside, the classic Rolex 3136 "perpetual" automatic beats away with durability and accuracy. The latest variant of the evergreen Cal. 3135 features Rolex's latest Paraflex shock absorbers and Parachrom Blue hairspring. Both features contribute to the resilience of this COSC Swiss chronometer when magnetism, shock, and temperature variation attempt to break the Rolex's stride. With a 50-hour power reserve, this is a set-it-and-forget-it machine for daily use. WatchBox is pleased to offer this Rolex Datejust II 116334 with full boxes, manuals, and extensive factory accessories. Watch enthusiasts who love the look of the classic Rolex Datejust but long for a modern case size are in luck.
