Rolex Datejust Ref 69173 Jubilee dial

Here we have a beautiful Rolex Lady Datejust Ref. 69173 with jubilee dial, in two-tone execution of stainless steel and 18k yellow gold.

Rolex has a habit of celebrating their milestones. The iconic Jubilee bracelet, for instance, was launched alongside the Datejust in 1945, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the brand.

The jubilee dial is another example. These dials are covered in a 3D “Rolex” text pattern. They were launched to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Datejust in 1985.

This specimen, however, dates to 1995. This means the dial has been swapped at some point. Someone with good taste went for an update, sometime during the life of this beautiful Lady Datejust. We opted to leave it as is, since it is just a very, very attractive 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!
