Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph

Fine Watch Club are delighted of this rare and discontinued Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph from 2006. The watch is in superb condition and comes with all the link, box, papers, booklets, tag etc. A proper full set.

The Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph is a historically significant model within the Rolex portfolio, often regarded as a precursor to the more famous Rolex tool watches like the Submariner. First introduced in 1953, the Turn-O-Graph was revolutionary as it combined the classic aesthetics of the Datejust with the functionality of a rotating bezel, a feature that later became central to the design of Rolex’s professional series of watches.

The Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph features a bidirectional rotating bezel, which was initially intended to help time events and measure elapsed time. This feature set it apart from the traditional Datejust and positioned it as a more functional piece.

While maintaining the elegant and timeless design of the standard Datejust, the Turn-O-Graph incorporates sportier elements with its bezel. It typically features the classic Datejust traits such as a date window magnified by a Cyclops lens on the crystal, and beautifully finished dials available in various colors and textures.

Size and Case: Over the years, the Turn-O-Graph has been offered in different case sizes, but it is most commonly found in 36mm sizes like this and crafted in stainless steel.

Like other Datejust models, the Turn-O-Graph is equipped with Rolex’s perpetual mechanical self-winding movements, which are known for their precision and reliability. These movements are certified as Superlative Chronometers, having passed stringent tests for performance.

The  Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph was initially marketed to professionals who needed a tool watch but appreciated the elegance of a Rolex. It gained popularity as a “tool watch” and even served as the official watch of the United States Air Force Thunderbirds aerobatic team in the 1950s.

The Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph is sometimes referred to as the “Thunderbird,” linking it to its storied past with the USAF. Its blend of functionality with the luxurious appeal of the Datejust line makes it an interesting and versatile choice for collectors and enthusiasts who value both practicality and style in a watch. Its production has had various hiatuses and reintroductions, and although not currently part of Rolex’s active lineup, it remains a valued collector’s item, celebrated for bridging the gap between dress watches and sports watches.
