Watch details

Noted for its gorgeous original mint condition including the original platinum bracelet, this classic Rolex creation offers the pinnacle of vintage exclusivity. Exceedingly more rare than its golden counterparts, a platinum Day-Date was as luxurious in 1978 as it is today. It is important to note that the diamond dial and bezel are of original Rolex factory manufacture. Despite its heavily-embellished design, there is a decide understatedness to a platinum timepiece that is amplified by the age and condition of this watch in particular. 36mm. Stock 42548

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.
