The updated case proportions are Rolex’s response to the calls from many collectors for an increase in the size of its Professional Collection models, at a time when the trend towards larger watches was in full swing.
Complementing the bolder case is another addition to the collection, the Maxi dial, which first appeared on the green-bezel 50th Anniversary Edition Submariner in 2003, featuring larger indexes and wider hour and minute hands. Like the super case itself, the larger dial furniture is more appealing to some than others, but there is no doubt that it improves overall readability.

Because the official name of the Datejust is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, people sometimes think that the Oyster Perpetual and the Datejust are the same things. However, these are two different replica Rolex watch models. What is the easiest way to distinguish them? The Oyster Perpetual has no date display, while the Datejust always has a date display at the three o’clock marker, most often found under a Cyclops magnifying glass.

Oyster Perpetual watches always featured automatic mechanical movements. Although Rolex did produce quartz watches known as Oysterquartz, these watches were not Oyster Perpetual. Instead, they are actually special versions of the Datejust or Day-Date, and these quartz-operated models all feature a date window at 3 o’clock. Oyster Perpetual
