Watch details

Clean and classic… the twist of a distinctive dial, this handsome Day-Date remains in excellent original vintage condition with its wider-than-average hands to match its “wide boy” sigma dial. The bracelet is beautifully-preserved and shows little sign of wear. The watch is accompanied by the original warranty paper and booklets. It is made of 18 karat yellow gold. 36mm. We are not selling this watch as unpolished. Stock 44565

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.
