Two-tone Datejust 116233
Rolex is one of the most recognizable brands in the world, with the Datejust being one of their most iconic timepieces. In production since 1945, it only makes sense that the Datejust would be available in a large selection of feature sets and budgets. The two-tone variation is one of the most sought-after, offering a versatile combination of stainless steel and precious metal that can be worn casually or with formal attire. The Datejust also features a modest 36mm waterproof Oyster case and wears on either a five-piece link Jubilee bracelet or a three-piece link Oyster bracelet, creating a luxury watch that makes a statement without appearing too over-the-top.
The modern Datejust ref. 116233 offers the best of both worlds, combining classic and contemporary style. A traditional Oyster case is topped with a gold fluted bezel and features a jump date on the dial. Modern upgrades include a movement that has been certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute to ensure accuracy, broader lugs, and dials adorned with luminous markers, yellow gold, and often diamonds. Available on the secondary market for around $8k, the two-tone Datejust won’t break the bank either and is an excellent companion for formal wear, business attire, or casual wear.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
As its name would suggest, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is a suitable companion on land or while at sea. The case is tough and features a stainless steel finish as well as a depth rating of up to 150 meters or 500 feet. The case is available in a few different sizes for men and women and wears on a sleek three-link bracelet, bringing with it an air of sophistication that suits any outfit or activity.
The Aqua Terra came to market in 2002 and is available in a wide variety of feature sets, including different stainless steel finishes, with or without the addition of an annual calendar display on the dial, with or without a GMT hand, and multiple dial options, including the newer teak variation as well as a numerous special edition dials. Simply put, there are multiple varieties to choose from, and retailing from as low as $2,750 it’s easy to add one to your watch box.

Omega Speedmaster “Moonwatch”
The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is the grail watch of many, and with style this utilitarian and effortless, it isn’t hard to see why. The case is larger, measuring 42mm in diameter and wears on a matching stainless steel bracelet. Many variations pair the steel finish with a black dial and thin Tachymeter bezel, the latter of which can be adjusted by the wearer to measure speeds of up to 500 kilometers per hour. The Speedmaster also earns its name from its impressive chronograph functions, which can be used as a stopwatch to measure increments of time during various activities. The bezel and chronograph made the Speedmaster an ideal companion for space travel and, as a result, the Speedmaster was present during every lunar mission, earning it its other moniker the “Moonwatch”.
