Watch details

Exponentially more uncommon than their yellow gold counterparts, white gold Day-Dates offer clean, timeless and understated sophistication. This watch is noted for its excellent original vintage condition, larger-than-average baguette diamond markers on the original "pie pan" dial, original white gold President bracelet stamped "72" in the clasp and being accompanied by the original presentation box, warranty paper and timing certificate. While perhaps not as flamboyant as other Day-Dates, this piece will certainly find a home with an appreciative collector of rare beauties. 36mm. Stock 41567

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.
