Salmon dial - Day Dates are widely known to come in single metals only, be it platinum, yellow, white or rose gold but there is a two, no, three tone version as well. The Tridor is a combination of all gold colors. The case is kept sleek in white gold, a base on which the other gold colors will be nicely pronounced. The fluted bezel is in yellow gold and the center links of the bracelet are kept in all three gold colors including pink gold. This has always been kind of an outliar but we have seen an increased demand for these. What makes this even more interesting is the salmon no lume dial blending nicely with the different nuances of the case and bracelet, especially the tiny pink gold inlays in the links. This is one of the nicest if not the nicest Tridor configurations out there. We are happy that the Tridor is getting some appreciation, finally.

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.
