Watch details

Described by Josh Bonifas as “mint, mint” condition, this time piece has the further distinction of being accompanied by the original Jubilee bracelet.. One most always finds Day-Dates fitted with President bracelets, however, this bracelet (#8386) was produced specifically for the Day-Date. This configuration would have been custom ordered this way from the Rolex factory. The silver dial has a soft, warm gold undertone that further heightens the beauty of this piece. Accompanied by the original box and papers. 36mm. Stock 35591

In 1956, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date made its debut. Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created specially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people.


Rolex watches have long been associated with those who have, over time, guided the destiny of the world. No matter their vision, their domain of excellence, or their achievements, the one thing these exceptional men and women have in common is often their watch: the Day-Date.
