You Won’t Want to Miss Rolex’s Largest Datejust Watch
While the Rolex Datejust is one of the world’s most recognizable and most popular luxury Swiss watches, it wasn’t always meant to be an oversized watch. For over 60 years, Datejust watches featured a smaller 36mm case until the company released the Datejust II in 2009. The Datejust II was replaced with the Datejust 41 in 2016 and has been one of the world’s most sought-after watches ever since.
In addition to their generous size, these watches also feature the stylish design and impeccable craftsmanship that Rolex watches are known for. This includes Rolex’s signature automatic Caliber 3235 movement with a 70hr Power Reserve. If you are looking for a watch that will last a lifetime, the Rolex Datejust 41 is an excellent choice.

A Brief History of Oversized Watches
While larger watches gained traction briefly during the 1970s, by the 1990s, many luxury watch cases hovered around 37-39 mm. However, watch sizes have been trending upward since the late nineties, with notable watchmakers releasing watches with cases 40mm and up, like the Breitling Superocean Automatic 44 and the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M. Rolex also released larger watches, including the Rolex Deepsea diving watch.
With the growing popularity of these larger watches, Rolex decided it was time to update their beloved Datejust collection to include a more oversized watch. The Datejust 41 is Rolex’s second in their line of larger Datejust watches.
The Original Datejust Watch
Introduced in 1945, the Datejust watch is generally credited with being the first self-winding wristwatch and has become one of the most popular Rolex watches. It is also the watch of presidents, worn by Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, as well as Martin Luther King Jr. and Winston Churchill. This makes it a status symbol for any collector.
The Datejust II
The Datejust II was released in 2009 and was Rolex’s first attempt at creating a larger Datejust. This watched featured a Caliber 3136 movement and quickly became a popular watch. However, it was discontinued in 2016 and replaced with the more refined Datejust 41.
The Datejust 41
While the Datejust 41 took inspiration from the Datejust II, these watches feature several significant differences. The Datejust 41 is slimmer and more modern with an updated Rolex Caliber 3235 movement. It also comes in more variations, a testament to the staying power of this watch. This stunning timepiece is worn by Roger Federer, Aaron Paul, and others.
Rolex Datejust 41: Features
In addition to its bold size, the Rolex Datejust 41 offers all the little details that Rolex is known for, including a cutting-edge movement style and beautiful flat sapphire crystal with a cyclops lens. See what else makes this watch a winner.
As its name suggests, the Rolex Datejust has a case size of 41mm, making it a substantial timepiece and the largest Datejust in the entire collection. While not as large as 44mm watches, it’s certainly robust yet elegant.
The Datejust 41 features Rolex’s innovative in-house Rolex Caliber 3235 movement. Introduced in 2015, this movement type holds an astounding 14 patents and has a power reserve of up to 70 hours. It is also officially “Superlative Chronometer” certified by Rolex. This means that it meets standards that are twice as stringent as the ones set for COSC chronometer certification.
The Datejust 41 is a multifunctional timepiece with a date display magnified by the cyclops lens. This is what gives the Datejust its name.
Datejust 41 cases and straps come in a wide range of materials, including Oystersteel, yellow rolesor, white rolesor, and everose rolesor. This bold selection of colors means there is an option for every taste.
Rolex offers several different strap options for the Datejust 41, including the jubilee bracelet and the oyster bracelet. The Datejust watch worn by Martin Luther King had a Jubilee bracelet, though the Oyster bracelet has its own share of fans.
Rolexes are recognizable by their signature bezels, and the Datejust is no exception. They feature either a smooth or fluted style bezel in steel or gold.
What Makes the Rolex Datejust 41 Special?
This significant thing to remember about the Rolex Datejust 41 is that it cements the popularity of large wristwatches as a lasting trend. These watches also come in a vast number of options in terms of style, with several different dials and bands to choose from.
Like all Datejust watches, the Datejust 41 is considered a classic watch worn by some of the most powerful men in history. It is ideal for collectors that want a genuine Rolex but even larger. With so much to love about this robust watch, it’s sure to be beloved for generations to come.
Things to Consider When Buying a Datejust 41
Like any luxury watch, it is essential to research and consider all your options when buying a Rolex Datejust 41. Here are some things to think about before you make a purchase.
The most important thing to know about a Rolex Datejust 41 is that it is a pretty big watch. While it is not quite as large as the Breitling: Bentley B06 or the Seamaster Diver 300M, it is still sizable. If you are looking for a slightly smaller watch, you might want to look at the rest of the Datejust line.
New or Preowned
There are many excellent reasons to purchase a new watch, but sometimes it makes more sense to buy a preowned watch. The Rolex Datejust collection has become one of the most popular collections of Rolex watches. However, watch trends change. Purchasing a preowned watch can save you money. It also allows you to see how well the value of your voice has held up and access models that are no longer available.
There are many fake Rolexes, which is why you always want to purchase your Swiss watch from a certified dealer like Bob’s Watches. We have the knowledge and experience to ensure that every watch we sell is authentic.
The Datejust 41 is not the only Rolex with a case larger than 40mm. Rolex Oysters, Submariners, and Daytonas also have models with these larger cases. Additionally, Breitling and Omega have several larger watches to choose from.
