Rolex 18046 in Platinum, Diamonds Pave and Sapphire dial The Day-Date is the perfect watch for all occasions, and has had great success since its unveiling at Basel in 1956. The present reference 18046 is in superb condition, and a rare find as it is encased in platinum. The pavé diamond dial is absolutely spectacular, and adorned with two baguette-shaped sapphires at 6 and 9 o’clock, surrounded by a diamond set bezel. This watch has a highly unusual Rolex logo appearing to float in the air, as it is printed on the underside of the crystal, as a result of the dial being completely encrusted with diamonds.

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.
