The Rolex Day Date was launched in 1956 as the Resident model of the collection. Heads of state as well as celebrities wear it on a daily basis and gave this watch the iconic status it has today. The present example is from 1971 and is in excellent condition. At magnification of the dial you can see green and red dots providing a magical look.
|Case||Excellent sharp 18K white gold case with very little wear from age|
|Bracelet / Strap||Excellent Big logo President bracelet with very little stretch for its age|
|Dial||Very nice matte black dial with beige indexes. 3 lume plots have flaked off which is very common for these dials|
Arguably one of the most iconic watches ever made, the Day-Date aka the Rolex President was introduced in 1956 and was the first to feature both the day and date in dedicated windows on the dial.
The Day-Date is the top model in the Rolex line-up and comes in an array of configurations with rare and special dials and case decorations. It has only ever been made in precious metals with Automatic movements and historically with an elegant diameter of 36mm - the perfect size for an iconic dress watch.
