Watch Of The Week

My watch of the week is The Rolex Datejust 41 from Keanes Jewellers. Classic and elegant, the Rolex Datejust 41 makes a strong yet subtle statement on the wrist. It looks great with a suit and tie and lets people know you mean business. With the Datejust 41, you get a lot of bang for your buck. Remember, this is Rolex after all. As the name suggests, the Rolex Datejust 41 comes in a 41mm Oyster case, waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). That's thanks to the brand's patented Twinlock double waterproofness system. The winding crown screws down against the case to ensure a secure seal. The crystal, with iconic Cyclops lens at 3 o'clock for easy reading of the date, is made of sapphire. The middle case is crafted from a solid block of 904L steel. Inside is the calibre 3235. This self-winding mechanical movement is developed and manufactured by Rolex. It boasts 14 patients in total, including the new Chronology escapement. This escapement combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. New barrel architecture and superior efficiency mean a power reserve of 70 hours. The Rolex Datejust 41 is a robust and versatile timepiece, aka the perfect everyday watch. You'll find this stunning Rolex watch at Keanes Jewellers for €13,750.
