Jubilee too damn busy. It just screams, "Look at me! Please notice my watch! Please!"

Personally, I do feel like the Datejust is a bit of a “blingy” watch that is a little more on the dress side. The jubilee has more smaller links which I find adds to the “blingy” look of a Datejust. Maybe it is a bit much though 🤔

Some people wear a watch simply because they love it, not because they’re looking for attention or confirmation from others.

Personally, a datejust has to have a jubilee bracelet and flutted bezel with Roman or diamond hour markers or I’m not interested. A plain smooth bezel on an oyster datejust looks no different than a boring, soulless oyster perpetual.

The Jubilee was designed for the Datejust. Yes it’s “pretty” or more “dressy” than an oyster but it is also arguably a lot more comfortable. Oysters are perfect for tool watches.

Jubilee and Fluted is too much on a simple DJ. I chose oyster. The PCL adds a nice touch without making it too busy.

1041% agree. I intentionally got my blue dial DJ with fluted bezel on an Oyster Bracelet because I wanted to tone the watch down and be more versatile for day to day wear. Plus I never felt the Jubilee feels better on wrist and prefer Oyster bracelets as a rule. Just personal preference - no wrong answer.

·

The jubilee bracelet looks feminine to me. I prefer a bold look of the oyster bracelet. I am sorry but this is my personal opinion so please don’t take it the wrong way. I understand that there are a lot of guys out there that prefers Jubilee.

·

Just do what what I did - buy it on oyster and order a separate jubilee bracelet. Problem solved.

·

The Oyster bracelet (as well as the smooth bezel) certainly tone down the "bling", but I personally feel that the Jubilee and the fluted bezel suit the DJ very well.

I do not disagree that Jubilee is a bit blingy somtimes however you can not deny how comfortable it is especially for smaller wrist gang Lol

·

It’s got to be the jubilee for me. Really comfortable and looks great with a fluted bezel. For me it suits the datejust and I think the datejust should be a bit more dressy than the other Rolex models. The scratches don’t show either. The middle link of an oyster picks up lots of visible scratches

·

The jubilee and fluted bezel are hallmark of a DJ, but ultimately, buy what you like.

I completely agree. If it’s used to dress up mostly, the jubilee and fluted bezel makes sense. For a daily wear, I’d much rather have the oyster and smooth bezel.

Imo, the jubilee just fits with the overall design best. That said, the watch is marvelous with either. 👍
