How to set your Rolex Datejust

Originally introduced into the Rolex collection in 1945 the Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic models available on the watch market. It was the first wristwatch to have a date complication that changed itself at midnight, meaning that 'the date is always just' and providing the watch with its name; the Datejust. Later in 1953 the Datejust was given one of its iconic features, the cyclops lens and a small magnifying lens over the date and helping the wearer to see the date better.

Using your watch in water.

Many watches are able to be used in water but do we understand what type of water we can use our watches in? Then to add to the confusion, some watches are referred to being waterproof whilst some say water resistant, what is the difference? Well waterproof means that it is 100% sealed and water cannot get in to the mechanism in anyway; whereas water resistant means that the watch is able to resist the penetration of water to some degree. Many watches now have ATM engraved on the back and this refers to the pressure a watch can withstand, it may seem a little strange but ATM stands for atmosphere. 1 atmosphere is the normal atmospheric pressure a watch would be under when static at sea level and the pressure goes up (as does the rating) depending how much pressure the watch can be put under before it may break.
