1980s fashion placed heavy emphasis on expensive clothes and fashion accessories. Apparel tended to be very bright and vivid in appearance. Women expressed an image of wealth and success through shiny costume jewelry, such as large faux-gold earrings, pearl necklaces, and clothing covered with sequins and diamonds. Punk fashion began as a reaction against both the hippie movement of the past decades and the materialist values of the current decade. The first half of the decade was relatively tame in comparison to the second half, which is when the iconic 1980s color scheme had come into popularity.
But which style you are dressing does not matter for the Datejust, it goes with every style. This one comes from around 1980 and has the quickset, but that is just easy. The beauty of the watch is in the ‘pumpkin’ tritium. That emphasizes the vintage look, giving it character. Sunburst silver dial with the contrast of the pumpkin tritium, a beautiful contrast.
