1995 ROLEX PRESIDENT LADY-DATE-JUST LAPIS DIAL 18K GOLD MODEL 69178
When the original Datejust made its first appearance in celebration of Rolex’s 45th anniversary, it instantly became iconic. Figures as revered as Martin Luther King Jr., President Eisenhower, Winston Churchill, and even the Dalai Lama have sported this classic timepiece at one time or another, as have celebrities such as Rihanna, Daniel Craig, Michael Jordan and Jennifer Aniston. It has appeared on the wrists of the iconic Paul Newman, Christian Bale, and Bill Murray in the films The Color of Money, American Psycho, and Lost in Translation, respectively. It is a timepiece that telegraphs class and sophistication the second it catches the eye.
The Lady-Datejust brings all of that, along with an air of elegance. This timepiece features a case that shares its 18-karat yellow gold composition with arguably Rolex’s most elite bracelet: The President. Forged only from the most precious metals and originally intended to be included exclusively with the Day-Date, it earned its name in 1965 after it was worn by Lyndon Johnson, inspiring Rolex to take out a full-page print ad capitalizing on how often it had proven to be the watch of choice for several American presidents.
Also of special note, is the mesmerizingly blue dial which is crafted from wafer-thin lapis, a semi-precious stone that is mined throughout northern Afghanistan, and is said to have properties that heal, protect, and help those who possess it to speak their truth. This original dial was made in a limited quantity and considered a collectors piece.
It may have been manufactured in 1995, but this watch is perfect for the 21st Century woman with the kind of strength and ambition that can only be fully complemented by a piece that is — truly — Presidential.
