Watch details

The Day Date was launched in 1956 as the President only being produced in precious metals. Over the years some very rare and special references had been introduced, however the most important factor on these still is the dial. As special dials there are variations of diamond setting, lacquer Stella dials and stone dials. There aren't many variants for these, they come in Tiger's Eye, Malachite, Lapis, Rubilite, Sodalite, Onyx and a couple of other dials. The Onyx dial is being loved for its simplicity because there is not much printing on it. Gold and black is a very classic combination and always works. This dial has become quite rare over the years and there are not many around. An instant eye-catcher for sure
