Stealth Wealth In the universe of Day Dates we strive to find the most lavish, extravagant, colorful and glamorous versions studded with diamonds, bearing colorful and exotic dials and rare bracelets but there are also Day Dates that would stand out because of their sheer simplicity. This reference 1802 in platinum is such a candidate breathing the 'Stealth Wealth' point of view. The watch is configured in a beautiful monochrome way with its silver no lume dial and hands. For an even more sleek look we have installed an original no cyclopes plexi. Maybe the most toned down Day Date you will ever see and considering it is in platinum, makes this a very timeless and sophisticated heavy hitter.

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.
