Rolex Lady Datejust 28mm 279161 Review

Time to get acquainted with a ladies watch of the highest caliber.

Every so often we need to review an exceptional ladies watch. While there are so many out there, there are few that are as worthy as this Rolex Datejust 28mm. The model featured in this review has the reference number 279161 Chocolate Index Jubilee. Let’s get started, shall we?

The first impression of this watch is that its design is striking, rich and warm. It has a pretty and small size at only 28mm but the combination of stainless steel and Rolex’s proprietary hue of rose gold called Everose gives this watch wrist presence that would otherwise not be there on stainless steel or even a platinum models.

The Chocolate sunburst dial looks quite delicious and makes use of Everose for the bezel, the luminous hands and index hour markers which all have a nice polished finish.

The Datejust 28mm collection contains hundreds of different models and they vary in design, case material, and bracelet type. On this model, the two-tone jubilee bracelet provides for a distinctly Rolex look with the smaller polished rose gold center links laid out in a staggered formation between the brushed stainless-steel outer links.

The bracelet is fastened with a concealed stainless-steel folding clasp that snaps shut with an Everose Rolex crown logo which stems from the end of the rose gold center links. As you can see from the image below, the inside of the folding clasp has special Rolex engravings and markings.

Another distinctly Rolex feature is the Cyclops date magnifier at the 3 o’clock position. On a small, 28mm watch, when you compare them side by side against the much larger men’s Datejust watches, the magnifier looks larger than the men’s but it’s not too large in any sense of the word.

This watch will grab people’s attention. It’s elegant and sophisticated, yet youthful and stylish. It’s not the kind of watch you would want to wear if your wrist is trying to fly under the radar.

 

One thing that does fly under the radar on this watch is its movement, the case uses a solid case back so it’s sealed in tight and like all Rolexes can’t bee seen through the case backs like some other brands. However, that just adds to the mystique of the caliber that powers this watch.

2236Of course, we’re talking about the in-house manufacture caliber 2236. This is an automatic mechanical movement which contains 31 watch jewels and has a beat of 28,800 VpH. It features a patented Syloxi hairspring which is made from a composite produced from the antimagnetic materials silicon and silicon oxide.

The self-winding Rolex 2236 movement has a power reserve of 55 hours and is both a highly accurate COSC certified chronometer and comes with a Superlative Chronometer designation from Rolex attesting to its even better than COSC specs performance and precision.

Overall this is an excellent ladies Rolex watch that looks magnificent and offers excellent performance. To browse the full collection of Rolex Lady Datejust 28mm Stainless Steel and Everose Gold watches click the button below.
