Datejust President 31 Ref. 68278

Sale price$18,500.00





Case Size:


The Rolex Datejust is one of the most popular watches here at Greenwich Time. The Datejust is known for its iterations in stainless steel, but in instances when it is done in 18k yellow gold, it comes to life and becomes a statement piece.

This reference is referred to as a "mid-sized" at a glance; it's easy to scratch your head and wonder why. The Datejusts can be had in 41mm, 36mm, 31mm, 28mm, and 26mm, which places it smack in the middle.
Many consider the Datejust the perfect "do it all" watch, and for a good reason, this 68278 is water resistant to 100m.


This example is in good pre-owned condition, meaning there are some signs of wear and apparent scratches on the case and bracelet. The bracelet is tight, with only a slight stretch between the links.

This Datejust is presented with a box and a Greenwich Time 2-year warranty.

Rolex was founded in 1905 in London by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis. The company began as a modest endeavor, assembling watches from imported parts. However, Rolex soon grew into an internationally renowned brand through the great business strides that the young Hans made.

The Rolex name is inextricably linked to the ubiquity of the modern wristwatch, from humble beginnings to epitomizing achievement and prestige. The crown has transcended film, literature, fashion, culture, and history, worn by record-breakers, presidents, and fictional characters.
