Rolex Datejust Ref. 69173

Have a look at this beauty. A Bicolour Rolex Lady Datejust Ref. 69173 with a sought-after blue dial.

This is the five-digit reference generation from ca. 1994, meaning we get a sapphire crystal and quickset date caliber. This makes it a perfect watch for worry-free everyday use. No scratches on your crystal, no cramps in your fingers from setting the date manually.

This example comes with a beautiful pale blue dial. Its sunburst finish makes for some beautiful light play under the actual sun. Speaking of sun, this watch makes us feel like summer. The warmth of the gold perfectly matches with the sky-blue of the dial, this is one sunny watch!

Backstory

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!
