Strap Guide written by @hvwatchphoto.
The Rolex Datejust is an icon in the world of watches and of course, as a brand, Rolex is on everyone's lips if they are asked "tell me an expensive watch". The watch enthusiast is of course aware that Rolex has earned its reputation and position in the watch scene, but there are also many brands that exceed with their quality and even if it doesn't really matter, also with their higher price tag.
The Rolex DJ II in question was the first Rolex I've ever owned, and when I got it I was overjoyed. Part of me felt that the “game has been played” and this is the “end game watch”. But as all of us watch nerds know...there is no cure for this disease and no such thing as an “end game watch”.
It's also not believable to claim that the watch is a "keeper", but I still dare to claim that this watch is. The watch in question was on my wrist when my firstborn son was born and that's when I decided that I wanted to give this watch to my son when he is old enough.
The shocking increase in the value of Rolexes and the constant desire to try something new has become a problem from the watch enthusiast's point of view. I admit that sometimes I also feel bored with this model.
For that, I have boldly set out to try new straps for DateJust, and it has been a really interesting and refreshing journey. Whether it's a nato strap, rubber strap or high-quality handmade leather strap... they always bring new energy to the use of a familiar and perhaps even boring watch. Rolex doesn't offer any other strap options for this model, other than a metal bracelet... so it might get boring.
With its enormous high-quality and versatile selection of 21mm straps, Delugs offers many opportunities to renew the look of this watch. Just remember to choose curved spring bars and you are good to go.
