Hey, guys, this is Kevin from, and today we'll be reviewing the Rolex Datejust II, reference number 116334. We'll be going over the price, the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp. And we'll go through the movement at the end of the video. So, as of May 2018, unfortunately this watch has been discontinued, the Datejust II. They've been discontinued to make room for the Datejust 41s, which is the reference number 126334. You can also get them in the stainless steel, as well. We do have a video of a comparison between the 126334 and the 116334 on our YouTube channel. You can check out the exact differences between the two watches and see what updates have been made. So, specifically as this model is a discontinued, an older model, it used to retail for 91,000 at authorized dealer. However, there is still some out there as it's only been very recent. It's only been about a year now for the discontinuation of this watch. So, there's still some new old stock and such. And we'll be able to help you out in finding those. So, give a quick look through our website at for the most up-to-date pressing for this watch. So, let's go ahead and move right into the dial. So, the dial's configuration I have in my hand here is the Rhodium dial with diamond hour markers. Beautiful diamond hour markers fashioned in 18 karat white gold to prevent any tarnishing. The Rolex crown logo at the 12 o'clock position, along with the hour and the minute hand, and the seconds hand are all fashioned out of 18 karat white gold, as well. So, no luminosity on this specific dial configuration so there's not very much legibility in the night. If you are looking for something more legible in the night, there are the index hour markers, which have a highly legible chromalight display with long-lasting blue luminescence. And you can get that in the black and blue or silver and white dial. Of course, if you're not interested in the index markers or even these diamond hour markers, maybe the diamonds are too flashy for you, there's also the Roman numerals. And you can get that in a blue dial or black dial with an index nine-hour marker. Besides that, this dial here, nice beautiful sunburst dial, as you can see as I tilt it to various light sources. You can see that sunburst effect kind of take place and see it shift in lighting on the dial, which is absolutely gorgeous, matches with the fluted bezel. The fluted bezel is also made out of 18 karat white gold. And you can see as I tilt it towards different various light sources, that captures light in different areas of the bezel, making it very eye catching overall. As this is a dress watch, we have nice high polish on the case of the watch that matches with that nice fluted bezel, the shimmering of the diamond hour markers, all the way down to the bottom portion of the case, which has also a nice high polish, as well. The case of this watch is a 41 millimeter case size. So, from my index finger to my thumb here, that's 41 millimeters in diameter. Side profile of the watch, nice high polish on it. And also, doesn't sit too high, will fit under suit coats, dress coats very nicely. Other side of the case, nice high polish, Rolex crown logo on the crown itself. The crown is a screw-down twinlock, double waterproofness system. Simply unscrews counterclockwise as shown. In this standard position, you can wind the watch from a dead stop about 15 to 20 winds is all you need to get the watch started once more. So, going clockwise, that's how you wind the watch. Tugging the crown out very gently. Get it on second here, there we are. Voila, you can change the date instantaneously as shown just by running clockwise, very easy to do as you can see. Tugging the crown out to the final position will stop the seconds hand or the hack movement, a line for precise time setting, such as to an atomic clock online, you can set it down to the exact seconds. And of course, the hands move bi-directionally in this position. Pressing the crown back in once more will start that seconds hand. As you can see, it's already started. Always make sure to screw the crown in nice and tight in against the case, as you wanna keep the watch water resistant up to 100 meters or 330 feet. For the style of the Datejust, it comes in the oyster style bracelet. It only comes in the oyster style bracelet while the newer style, the 126334 comes in a jubilee style bracelet, as well. The 116334, you can only get this in this style bracelet, which is a three-piece link bracelet, high polished down the center with a nice sand finish on the outer of the three-piece links to contrast that nice high polish down the center to bring more shine out of there. The pattern continues nicely throughout the clasp and onto the other side of the bracelet, as well. The clasp is just a simple folding oyster clasp, as typically known on dress watches for Rolexes. Opening up reveals this nicely high polished clasp blade with the Rolex name embossed on there. Once again, here's the clasp closed up. And that's how it looks hidden behind the bracelet. And once again, opened up. Okay, moving on to the movement now. The movement is housed in this oyster case backing as Rolex's perpetual mechanical self-winding movement. It's a caliber 3136 movement, which is a step up from the 3135 movement that Rolex has in their sports watches and other Datejust pieces, which is a very old movement time tested for way over 10 years, so you know it's a very reliable movement. But for the 3136 movement, they've basically taken the 3135 movement and added what called, what the Rolex x call the paraflex shock absorbers, which is supposed to absorb 50% more shocks than the industry standard Kif shock absorbers. It's still is within precision of Swiss specs, which is the minus two, plus two seconds a day. And it has the same functions of the centric hour, minute, and seconds hand along with instantaneous changing of the date as I've shown you with the crown function and the obviously the stopping of the seconds hand, as well, for precise time setting. The power reserve is still the same. It's going to be a 48 hour power reserve. So, it means you can put this watch down on a Friday evening, pick it back up on a Sunday afternoon, and it will be keeping time just fine. One thing I forgot to mention is it also has a Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring that helps out with that precision, that minus two, plus two seconds a day due to the resistance against magnetism for that oscillator. All right, so I'm actually go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist now. So, we'll find that folding oyster clasp. There we are. Just to let you know, I have an average man sized wrist, which is a seven inch wrist. You can see still a little bit of room there. And there's the watch. Absolutely beautiful dial, oyster bracelet, just gorgeous, as well. The diamonds really work well together with that fluted bezel, the high polish just overall adding a great shine to the face of the watch really makes that eye catching.
