History
Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, started to make wrist watches because he foresaw that they had great potential in the future. He was only 24 at the time when he started.

Design
The M116200-72600_ BLUE INDEX Datejust is a beautiful Rolex watch crafted with perfection. This watch has a case made of 904 L steel, which is meticulously shaped by Rolex in its foundry. The bracelet is also made of the same 904l Steel and features a five piece easy link jubilee construction, designed especially for the Datejust series. A concealed crown clasp adds to the elegance of the intricate bracelet and ensures greater comfort. This use of only 904L steel gives the watch a monotone that goes well with the classic look it enumerates. A domed bezel made of 904L steel completes the look of this watch.

The dial itself is displayed in a beautiful blue that adds charm to the timepiece. Its hour indexes are small rectangles in white colour, outlined in steel. Hour numbers are showcased on top of these small rectangles through the use of small Roman numerals. The twelfth hour index is represented by the Rolex crown. A sapphire crystal atop the display is scratch proof to increase the durability of the watch. 

Features
With a Paramagnetic blue hairspring as its oscillator and a perpetual self-winding movement, this watch provides you with an extreme precision. Thus, this chronograph assure you the best performance as it has been tested under varied conditions and in different places and time settings.  A date feature, characteristic of the Datejust series, is present on the dial and is visible through an aperture located at the 3 o’clock position. This date feature changes the date instantaneously every day at the stroke of midnight ensuring accuracy.  The timepiece also uses a bi-directional perpetual rotor mechanism for greater efficiency. Water resistance is to a depth of 100 metres or 330 feet. This has been achieved by screwing the crown and the case together, so that they make a snug fit, thus does not allowing water to enter.

History
The Datejust collection was introduced by Rolex in the year 1945. This was the first wristwatch to display automatically changing date through an opening on the dial.


Features
Featuring a classic design and iconic style, the Datejust features a date window located at the 3 o’clock position for your ease in viewing. The date aperture showcases the Cyclops lens on the top, the most distinctive feature of Rolex watches. This lens magnifies the date by approximately two and half times for clear legibility. The watches in this collection have an oyster case, which is clamped shut and extremely robust. The core of the oyster consists of a screw-down case and a signed screw-down crown with twinlock system. This system renders the watches water-resistant up to 100 metres, enabling you to wear them for poolside swimming and snorkelling. The Datejust watches come with two classic Rolex bracelets, either the Jubilee or the Oyster. The Jubilee is a five-piece metal link bracelet with a concealed Crownclasp fitted at the end, and the Oyster is a broad three-piece metal link bracelet, which is quite popular because of its classic appeal. These watches have a standard 36 mm case, and are equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement manufactured by Rolex, the calibre 3135.


Associations
A Datejust was presented to an eminent gentleman by Hans Wilsdorf in 1947, on the 100,000th officially certified chronometer celebrated by the brand. The identity of this gentleman has not been revealed till this day. Christian Bale was seen wearing the Rolex Datejust 16013, in the movie American Pyscho. A Datejust has also been worn by Paul Newman in the movie The Color of Money, Bill Murray in the film Lost in Translation, and by various male characters in The Informers.
