Rolex Datejust Ref. 6917 lady’s

Here we have a rare beauty from the diverse world that is the Rolex Datejust!

This is a Ref. 6917 Lady Datejust in a very special guise. This beauty is executed in full 18k yellow gold, including the Jubilee bracelet with open construction.

As if that is not enough, the dial is an absolute show-stopper. This is a vignette dial with factory-set diamond indices. The deep red-brown dial pairs with the yellow gold case in such a stunning manner.

Vignette or degradé dials are made through largely the same technical process as the ultra-rare Stella dials. Since they are a little less rare, they are quite a lot more attainable. But they pack a very similar visual punch.

A gold Rolex with DIA vignette dial might sound like a bit much. But this little gem is still and exercise in restraint and subtle beauty. Perhaps it is in the classic vibe given off by the red-brown tone of the dial, but this Lady Datejust is pure elegance.

The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic watch designs ever made. We try not to use the term “iconic” too liberally, but it is surely justified here. Launched back in 1945 as the Ref. 4467, the design has been only marginally updated every now and then. And it has looked fresh and current ever since.

When it comes to vintage, two generations of Datejust are particularly popular; the Ref. 16xx and the later five-digit references. The 16xx models were made from the fifties until  roughly 1978 and feature a beautifully dimensional pie-pan dial. Many of these came on folded jubilee bracelets and they did not yet feature a quickset date.

When the reference was updated to five digits around 1978, the pie-pan dial was replaced by a flat dial. The caliber was updated to now feature a quickset date. A decade later, in 1988, a new update saw the introduction of a sapphire crystal. For us, this is where vintage Datejust becomes modern Datejust.

Countless variations can be found. Different bezels, bracelets, dial colors, sizes and materials. The Datejust is one of the most beloved and versatile watches around. If you are looking for a one-watch-collection, that works equally well with shorts as it does with a three-piece suit, the Datejust is probably a pretty safe bet!
