This matching set first came on the market back in 1945 and is still heralded as an icon. Rolex was the first to introduce a self-winding chronometer wristwatch to display a date in a bubble on the face. It appeared in the Datejust range. It may not sound significant by today’s technological leaps forward but it was ground-breaking at the time.
Instantly recognizable as a Rolex, it is customizable. Available in stainless steel or in combination with precious metals for that iconic two-tone look, it can be partially or fully set with brilliant-cut diamonds. Metal options are oyster steel, yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold. There is a choice of face colors, the bezel can be smooth, fluted, or diamond-set and all are self-winding and waterproof.
There’s a range of sizes on both the men’s and women’s watches making them ideal as a couple of watch sets.
Ideal for the couple who like to work hard and play hard, the Aquaracer has an undeniably sporty look. Water-resistant to 300m, they are constructed in classic two-tone steel and gold with a black, navy blue, or racing green face. Designed with the diver in mind, the 12-faceted, unidirectional bezel acts as a diving timer. There are special features to make it more attractive and easier to use for divers. These include a luminous dial and hands, an extension on the watch strap, and six studs on the case.
