The Rolex Date was introduced in the 1950s with the ref. 6534. The men’s Rolex Date watch was a smaller alternative to the men’s Rolex Datejust 34mm instead of 36mm. A solid entry-level Rolex, the Oyster Perpetual Date, whether vintage or modern, is a delightful everyday luxury watch. The 34mm size makes it a good choice for either men or women, particularly, for younger Rolex fans.
