1989 Rolex Day Date Platinum Jumbo Diamond Dial Ref. 18346
Heavy Hitter - One thing wearers of Day Dates love is the weight. The solid gold on the wrist is part of the flair of wearing a Day Date. This joy just becomes better when it’s a Platinum Day Date. This 18346 is a killer watch. The case is very well preserved and bears strong and well defined lugs. The bracelet is long and almost fully linked, showing only very little stretch from age. The Silver dial is flawless and bears Jumbo diamonds which are reserved for Platinum Day Dates only. All in all this is a very glamorous watch and feels so good on the wrist.

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.
