As usual, we got curious about how the Rolex Datejust got its name, we hoped wikipedia has the answer. It does not, unfortunately. However, for the trivia fans among us, here’s an interesting trivia about the Datejust and Adolf Hitler/
From wikipedia: “Also the Datejust is famous for its nickname; “The Adolf Hitler watch.” Since the watch was worn by Adolf Hitler himself in the intense period of time World war II. However this incidental fact is hardly known in today’s day and era.”
Really? Can’t they find another world leader who wore the Datejust that they can name it for? Geeze! Anyhoo, the Datejust is reportedly the first wristwatch that boasts of a date function.
From wikipedia: “The Rolex Datejust is an officially certified, self-winding chronometer wristwatch notable for becoming the first wristwatch with a date function, in 1945. The Datejust is offered with two classic Rolex bracelets: the jubilee and the oyster. The men’s size is 36mm. In 2009, the Datejust II was released. The men’s size is 41mm diameter.”
