This killer rose Day-Date has all the features of a ref. 6611, but it’s already a ref. 1803. A very early 1803: same dial, same hands, same butterfly rotor, same tight knurling fluted bezel. This watch is beautiful. I could bother getting into all that unpolished, firsta patina stuff, but beatiful just says it all. Check out the photos and judge for yourself.

Case – In 18K rose gold, screw back Movement – Rolex, self winding caliber 1530, butterfly rotor Dial – Rose, with rose gold markers, MKI Band – Made in Italy, custom suede leather strap by JP Menicucci

Alessandro Ciani


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.
