I think what makes the online buying experience even easier is having access to helpful information and sound advice as you make your Rolex selection. Today’s Spotlight is on the Rolex Datejust Lady 31mm 178240, a model that is often overlooked or perhaps not well known. While I discuss the factory specifications, I’ve also included the simple observations and opinions I’ve made about this model in particular over the years; hopefully providing a little more real-world perspective than what you would find in a Rolex pamphlet.
Before I Begin
We rattle off a model’s reference numbers a lot when talking Rolex. Each number and how they are arranged mean something specific, allowing you to communicate most of the watch’s specifications in shorthand. So I thought I’d first give a reference number breakdown whenever I do a Spotlight. This applies to the 5- and 6-digit reference numbers.
