Hands On With The Rolex Datejust II 116334

Hands On With The Rolex Datejust II 116334 stainless steel with white gold bezel continuing the Datejust theme thought it would be a good piece to post about.  This model has also just been discontinued by Rolex following Basel 2017.

This model was never a hit with Rolex hence why they said goodbye I did like this model but felt the proportions was all wrong big watch big bezel little small crown. Size was 41mm with a white gold bezel on a oyster bracelet with a option of a jubilee bracelet at point of sale. But wore big with a diddy little crown Submariner are 40mm but have big crown and looked correct.

The dial looked well thou stunning blue with baton hour markers and date window at 3 o clock, I  did try one out but never bonded with the watch. Rolex must have listen to folk and more than likely sales of the actual piece, they was not a best seller also very expensive at last Rrp was around £6850 ouch!! They have just launched a 41mm Datejust with white gold bezel so that is to fill the gap for saying fare well to the Datejust II.  So do not be running out to buy one thinking it will be a future collectors piece as I doubt it will. It seems the latest crazy when a watch they finish production of.

Hands on With Rolex Datejust II 116300

Posted on

Sticking with Datejust model, Hands on with the recently discontinued Rolex Datejust II 116300 stainless steel with smooth bezel and silver dial.  This watch was launched in 2009 and is 41mm in size wears a lot larger than the standard size gents 36mm Datejust. The watch is a mix of brushed steel and polished most of the head is polished and the oyster bracelet is brushed sides polished centre links with a folding Rolex clasp. The dial has baton hour markers pretty big with luminovo for night time luminosity . The blue dial version is much nicer version to the eye.

The watch comes on jubilee bracelet or oyster which I like them on both oyster more sporty look than dress.  The only thing I always thought was the crown was too small for the size of the watch in comparison to a Submariner with case size 40mm with a bigger crown.

Overall a nice watch but plain and bland good everyday watch that has just been fazed out at Basel 2017 to make way for the new Datejust 41mm not really sure the difference look very similar. But Datejusts always been a very popular model from Rolex that I not always bonded with.  Sports models tend to be the a better choice for residual value and more robust look.
