Watch details

Rose gold Day-Dates are far more uncommon than their yellow gold counterparts, however beyond the color, this watch is noted for its truly exceptional vintage condition. Like a “time capsule”, the watch remains in original, unpolished condition and retains the original sticker on the case back. The bracelet is also entirely mint. What an incredible find! 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.
