Rolex is introducing the 904L steel version of its new-generation classic Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 model, together with a white Rolesor version (a combination of 904L steel and 18 ct white gold) featuring an 18 ct white gold ﬂuted bezel. A wide selection of dials is available for both versions. Like the yellow Rolesor and Everose Rolesor versions introduced in 2016, the new Datejust 41 watches are equipped with a redesigned 41 mm case and the new Rolex calibre 3235, at the forefront of watchmaking technology with its 14 patents, the new Chronergy escapement and a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. Like all Rolex watches, the new Datejust 41 versions carry the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015.
An optimized blue Parachrom hairspring is fitted to the oscillator, the true heart of the watch. Patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, it is up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. A Rolex overcoil ensures its regularity in any position. Calibre 3235 is equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor. Thanks to its new barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3235 extends to approximately 70 hours.
Like all Rolex watches, the Datejust 41 is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive designation testifies that the watch has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria, which exceed watchmaking norms and standards. The certification applies to the fully assembled watch, after casing the movement, guaranteeing superlative performance on the wrist in terms of precision, power reserve, waterproofness and self-winding. The precision of a Rolex Superlative
Chronometer after casing is of the order of −2/+2 seconds per day, or more than twice that required of an official chronometer. The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.
