Watch details

A gorgeous example, suitable for a lady or a gentleman. Beautiful original condition with original “Dauphine” hands. Every bit of lume is intact. The dial is a subtle slate color, a unique shade that is not often seen, that is a symbiotic compliment to the rose gold. Dramatically change the look by changing the color of the strap. 36mm.

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.
