The Ultimate Watch of Prestige Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date, available only in precious metals, is the most prestigious and most exclusive watch in the Oyster Perpetual collection. This magnificent watch comes in two sizes, 36 and 40 mm
At its launch in 1956, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date was a major innovation, being the first calendar wristwatch to indicate, in addition to the date, the day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial – a technical feat at the time. The Day-Date has only ever been made from precious metals – 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold, or 950 platinum.
The ‘Presidents’ Watch’
Worn by many of the world’s political figures, directors and visionaries, the Day-Date is instantly recognizable, in particular thanks to its emblematic President bracelet, whose evocative name, together with the eminent figures who have worn it, ensured the Day-Date became known as the ‘presidents’ watch’.
Created specially for the Day-Date at its launch in 1956, the elegant and imposing President bracelet is inherent to the standing of the watch. Immediately recognizable, this solid 18 ct gold or 950 platinum bracelet with three semi-circular links provides complete reliability and comfort.
The President bracelet is fitted with a concealed Crownclasp, opened with a hinged Rolex crown – the final aesthetic and functional touch to this bracelet. It includes ceramic inserts inside the links to enhance its flexibility and longevity. A concealed attachment system on the bracelet ensures seamless visual continuity between the bracelet and case.
Perpetual Calibre 3255
The Day-Date 36 and Day-Date 40 are equipped with calibre 3255, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. A consummate demonstration of technology, this movement carries a number of patents. It offers outstanding performance in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability. Thanks to its architecture and superior efficiency, the power reserve of this movement extends to approximately 70 hours.
