Wealthy individuals are always interested in diversifying their investment to reduce risk and collectibles are a popular investment option. Increasingly investors are preferring to invest in luxury watches from top brands like Rolex because only a limited number of luxry watches of each model are available. Hence the value of the watches are increasing rapidly. One of the most popular Rolex watch models is the Rolex date just watch, and a variety of models are available for both men as well as women. Some of the main features of the watch which should be considered are discussed below.
While the watch mechanism is similar for all the Rolex datejust watch, they mainly differ in the material and design of the various watch components. Some of the major components of the watch are the watch case, watch dial, watch bezel, hour markers, watch strap. Based on market research, technology used and demand for the watches, Rolex is periodically releasing new models of the watches which usually vary in their design. The watch components are available in different colors, so buyers can select from the various color combinations available. The dial is usually light or dark in color with hour markers of a contrasting color, so that the user can read the time easily.
One of the main factors which determines the cost of the Rolex Datejust watches is the material used. Oystersteel is a steel alloy which has been specially developed for Rolex and used in many of its more affordable watches. Oystersteel is extremely corrosion resistant and retains its finish even when used extensively. Gold is another material which is used in many of the expensive Rolex watches since it is corrosion resistant, with three variants, yellow gold, white gold and everose gold being used in various models. Watches which use Oystersteel and Gold are also available for buyers who cannot afford fully gold watches.
Another feature of the Datejust models is that many of more expensive models have diamonds embedded in them.The latest models of datejust watches released have a floral pattern with 24 flowers on the dial to represent the 24 hours of the day. The flowers have a diamond embedded at the center of each flower. Some of the most expensive Datejust watches have a large number of diamonds embedded on the dial and bezel, and the price is directly proportional to the number of diamonds embedded in the watch. The more affordable diamond datejust watches are only using diamonds as hour markers, they use oyster-steel for the dial and bezel.
Since these watches are handcrafted, only a limited number of watches are available at the Rolex retailer. The watches for men are available in 3 different sizes, small with dial size 31 mm, medium dial size is 36 mm and large dial size is 41 mm. Datejust watches for women have a smaller dial size of 28 mm. These watches are water resistant to a depth of 100 meters. The movement used is mechanical and self winding, so no separate battery is required. The easylink comfort extension link allows the user to adjust the length of the bracelet/watch strap by approximately 5 mm for better fitting.
