Rolex Datejust Ref. 69173 “Blue Vignette” Full Set

You cannot buy style. But if you were born with style, this stunning Lady Datejust blue vignette might very well be right up your alley!

There is something about the combination of ice blue and icey diamonds paired with the warmth of a two-tone Rolex. We can be short about it: It works!

Something else that work very well is a Rolex with all the original papers, box and even the hang tag still present. Not that this dazzling watch needed any help, but it turns a winner into an even bigger winner!

If the unique blue vignette dial captivates you, come and try this beauty on in our Amsterdam boutique.

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!
