Watch details

This ref. #118208 Day-Date has a clean modern look thanks to the smooth bezel. This is also the only "Swiss only" vignette dial we have encountered, making it a very late example and among the last ones produced. This uncommon combination would be at home among a collection of Stella dial Rolex watches, as it possesses the same glossy allure. 36mm. Stock 36903

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.
