Watch details

The dial color is quite unique, with a semi-matte finish and a more yellow tone than the typical champagne color seen on Day-Dates. It is important to note that the diamonds are all of original Rolex factory manufacture and this is the correct reference number for a diamond bezel Day-Date. Offered in mint condition. 36mm.

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.
