The Datejust debuted in 1945 as the reference 4467, the first automatic watch with a date. It was crafted entirely of 18K yellow gold, possessed a minimally fluted bezel (closer to a coin-edge texture), and in fact did not display the word “Datejust” on its dial. It did boast a Jubilee bracelet though, the first one ever made.
The watch also featured Rolex’s waterproof Oyster case, along with a lightly curved dial, alpha hands, and a black/red font (“roulette”) date indication. At a time in which time-only watches were the norm, Rolex broke the mold.
In the first Datejusts, the date wheel took some time to actually change over to the next day. It wouldn’t be until 10 years later, in 1955, that Rolex would mitigate this inefficiency with an instantaneous mechanism.

Known the world over, Rolex is a benchmark for prestige and quality in watchmaking. Since its creation, the brand has placed the reliability of its products uppermost. It submits virtually its entire movement production for testing by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres to obtain COSC certification. Rolex is also renowned for its after-sales service which is performed by staff who have been specially trained, often in Rolex's own schools in countries around the globe, including the United States and Japan.
