If you’ve been paying attention to Rolex over the last few years or so, you would have no doubt noticed that the brand has changed a few of its case sizes. These dimension updates weren’t only reserved for men’s Rolex models – women’s Rolex watches have also benefited from some size increases. One example is the beloved Replica Rolex Lady-Datejust, which has been a mainstay of the Rolex catalog since 1957. After 58 years of existence as a 26mm watch, it became the Lady-Datejust 28 in 2015 with, you guessed it, a larger 28mm Oyster case. As the newest generation of the iconic luxury dress watch for women, the Rolex Lady-Datejust 28 brought about a revamped case design and updated movement. A fresh and modern take on the classic women’s Rolex watch.
In true Rolex fashion, the earliest versions of the Lady-Datejust 28 were exclusively available in precious metals and two-tone variants. However, it wasn’t long until steel models joined the lineup, and Rolex has continuously added new Lady-Datejust 28 variants, offering a seemingly endless choice of materials, bezel styles, bracelets, and dial colors. The most recent addition has been a full gem-set watch with a case, bezel, dial, and bracelet paved with 1,089 diamonds. Join us as we take a closer look at the beauty and impeccable performance of the Replica Rolex Lady-Datejust 28 watch.
When the Rolex Lady-Datejust 28 made its debut in 2015, the watches were available in full 18k yellow gold or Everose gold, as well as two-tone Yellow Rolesor and Everose Rolesor (Rolesor is what Rolex calls its watches that marry steel and gold). By 2017, Rolex expanded the line to include steel models with white gold fluted bezels (a.k.a. White Rolesor) and full stainless steel variants.
Similar to the larger Datejust watches, Rolex Lady-Datejust 28 cases are of the Oyster variety, which means that they are water-resistant to 100 meters deep. To ensure the hermetic seal, the 28mm Lady-Datejust Oyster cases benefit from a screw-down fluted caseback and screw-down Twinlock winding crown.
Depending on the model, Rolex Lady-Datejust 28 watches can have domed, fluted, or gem-set bezels. Furthermore, three-link Oyster bracelets, five-link Jubilee bracelets, and rounded three-link President bracelets are all available within the Lady-Datejust 28 lineup. Precious metal Lady-Datejust replica watches paired with matching President bracelets are aptly known as “Rolex Ladies’ President” watches.
When Rolex announced it was retiring the long-running Lady-Datejust 26 to make way for the new and larger Lady-Datejust 28, we welcomed the news.
As is customary for Rolex, the iconic Lady-Datejust did not drastically change – because, why mess with a best-selling Rolex watch? Yet, the slightly larger case size coupled with the new-generation movement were just the right touches to refresh the iconic Lady-Datejust to suit today’s watch buyers.
Contemporary yet classic, fresh yet instantly recognizable, the modern Lady-Datejust 28 successfully continues the enduring legacy of Rolex’s quintessential lady’s luxury timepiece.
