Being A Part Of The “Datejust Club”
While the movement inside of a watch is very important, to be honest, I didn’t need to think too much about it while wearing the Rolex Datejust 41. Rolex doesn’t make the movement visible through the rear of the case, which in many ways makes the wearing experience more about what is on the outside, versus what is on the inside. I say all this because I do find that watches with and without exhibition caseback windows do make for different wearing experiences. In the context of the Rolex Datejust 41, it allows me to focus a lot more on the design, as well as the club I am now a part of. That club being the many people before me and who currently wear Rolex Datejust watches.
I have a lot to say about the experience of being someone wearing a Rolex Datejust and what that makes me feel. In fact, I will spend the majority of this watch review discussing those elements, as I think it is central to the Rolex Datejust wearing experience. Allow me to explain. When I look at the Replica Watches on my wrist, sometimes I see the storied age of the design. This is a brand new watch, so why is it that I find it to look old?
It does help to recall that this is a design Cheap Rolex Replica Watches has been perpetuating since the 1950s. Even though the Datejust debuted in 1945, it was not until the next decade that Rolex modified the design of the Datejust more to its current form. That includes the distinctive hands, bezel design, and bracelets. This means that for over 60 years people around the world have become familiar with the core look of a Rolex Datejust. I will talk more about the Rolex Datejust in popular culture below, but suffice it to say that when you decide to wear a Rolex Datejust, you aren’t simply wearing a timepiece that becomes part of your personality. Rather, you are putting on an institution, and lending your personality to it.
This is an important distinction because, in my opinion, “you wear some watches” and at other times “the watch wears you.” If that sounds cheesy, then perhaps you have a better way of phrasing it. The idea I am trying to convey is that some watches are so recognizable, they have a personality independent of who is wearing them. Thus, if the watch is more famous than the person wearing it, it lends personality to its wearer in a way that a less distinguishable timepiece ever can. The Replica Rolex Watches has that power, and when you put it on, the perceptions people have of what the watch suddenly become part of your character – regardless of whether those traits apply to you.
Why is it that watch enthusiasts and collectors rarely themselves wear Rolex Datejusts? The worst thing most of them have to say about Cheap Replica Watches is that they are “boring” or “the watch a grandfather wears.” Watch enthusiasts often see the Rolex Datejust as the luxury watch for the masses. It is what you wear if your collection of timepieces is small or consists of just a few items to help your sense or style or external communication of success. So much of the mystique about the Rolex Datejust is in being an overt luxury item as opposed to a representation of horology.
