Rolex watches are famous all over the world for their supreme craftsmanship and reliability. They own the top slot in the luxurious watch industry as each Rolex watch is beautifully crafted in gold, platinum or stainless steel, embedded with the finest quality diamonds, emeralds, rubies and other precious stones. Although all Rolex models are true masterpieces, there are a few models which are absolutely must-haves. One such model is Mens Rolex Datejust.
Mens Rolex Datejust has been the most sought after model, and is probably one of the best selling Rolex models. It was introduced in 1945 to mark the 40th anniversary of the inception of Rolex. It was the first wristwatch to feature a date display, making it instantly popular. The first datejust model featured a coin edge bezel which later got replaced with a new fluted bezel and a larger crown.
Over the years, many changes were introduced to Rolex Mens Datejust models to keep up with the technological advancements in the watch industry. The most notable of all of them was the introduction of a special Cyclops magnifying lens on the Datejust at the Basel Fair in 1954. This made the model even more popular than before. A Datejust model featuring a Turn-O-Graph gold bezel was released in 1956 by Rolex. This model was called the Thunderbird and enjoyed moderate success.

With the introduction of the Quick-set feature, it was possible for any person wearing a Datejust model to quickly adjust the date function without having to turn the crown over and over again. Later, adding to its popularity, the new sapphire crystal was introduced, giving scratch resistance and waterproof security to the Datejust model.
