Watch details

Offered in mint original condition, the watch is noted for its unusual blue vignette diamond dial and impeccably-preserved case and bracelet (#8385). White gold Day-Dates are far more scarce in the marketplace than their yellow gold counterparts. This color combination is very wearable, as it is gentle reminiscent of denim. 36mm. Stock 0010

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.
