The most recognizable feature of the Rolex Datejust , is the fluted bezel. Originally the bezel was engineered that way to help with deconstruction but Rolex quickly found out that people loved it for its design. The , comes with a stainless steel and rose gold fluted bezel and a rose gold size case.
Housed in the 126231 36mm case is the Rolex in-house calibre 3235 automatic movement. The 3235 is a newer movement from Rolex and came with significant upgrades. The power reserve has been improved from 40 hours to 70 hours and there were significant gains made in the anti-magnetic protection. Although Omega was first to the party with movements of this stature, Rolex has now gone toe to toe and have excelled with modern movements and manufacturing.
Of course with all Rolex movements, the in house calibre 3235 automatic movement is COSC certified. To take it one step further Rolex has designated their watches Superlative Chronometers because they can still maintain their accuracy +2/-2 seconds per day even after casing.
The Rolex 126231 has a beautiful Jubilee bracelet constructed of stainless steel and rose gold. Rolex is known for their bracelet design and construction for being some of the most comfortable metal bracelets available. The tapered Jubilee bracelet on the 126231 fits the mold.
In our opinion, what doesn’t get much love is the clasp on the Jubilee bracelet. It plays such a critical role but everyone’s so focused on all the other beautiful aspects of the 126231 that one can sometimes get lost. The newer Oyster Clasps offer secure protection and at the same time augment the comfortability and wearability of the 126231.
