Rolex Lady Datejust 31mm and Datejust II Review
For the Datejust II, we’ll be reviewing the black dial, stick dial, smooth bezel model. And the Lady Datejust 31mm is the 31mm with a grey floral dial. Both of our Swiss Rolex have the beautiful oyster bracelets.
Both models claim a 48 hour power reserve and they easily get 48 hours. The dial on the DateJust 31mm is impossible to do any real accuracy measurements. It seems this timepiece is losing 3-4 seconds per day, which would be a very good rate of accuracy. And the DJ2 is consistently losing 2-3 seconds per day, which is really excellent.
The 31mm ladies’ piece would wear very is stunning and gorgeous on the wrist. Although the Lady Rolex is quite a dressy piece, it looks superb with a t-shirt and jeans or any other casual clothes. The polished Rolex Steelinox is incredible and popular, Stunning, Sensational and Superb.
What’s more, the DJ2 seems even dressier than the Rolex Lady Datejust. It is 41mm thick and very slim, so, it is not a large piece. It wears best with a business suit. But, as with the ladies’ piece, the super-high-quality Rolex Steelinox really makes it pop.
The thing about a Rolex on steel bracelet is that it wears so easily. Even though mine is a bit tight (or else it would be too loose), I can just forget it once it’s on. I just don’t feel it. The all-steel case and bracelet make it very colour-neutral and it will match anything — even with the black dial.
The black, stick dial has minute markers at 5, 10, 15, 20, etc.- large, simple and obvious. Gorgeous, actually. And there are also small lines marking each minute. In very small writing above the “sticks” marking each 5 minutes are actual numerals. This is a very subtle design element. It is also very effective. It adds a little sporty touch which seems to make the whole piece even more versatile.
The DJ2 does actually get a lot of compliments, but it does not scream for attention. It has a quiet confidence because it is just so high end and capable. I think, it may be the ultimate business watch: versatile, accurate, solid, robust and elegant. Having a slight sporty character. Simple. Look at the dial- so simple. It just confidently displays the time and the date.
