Watch details

This watch is noted for its unpolished case and uncommon blue vignette Sigma dial with original factory diamonds. The color is striking, yet also reminiscent of denim and looks well with any palette. The dial has some “spidering”, which is common with certain (authentic) vintage Rolex dials. It does not distract from the beauty of this lovely creation. 36mm. Stock 42537

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.
