The Day-Date is known throughout the world as a symbol of status and success. Different presidents and important people have had this watch on their wrists and it only has become more popular ever since. This was the first watch which displayed the days of the week in full on the dial. No watchmaker knew what the world needed when it comes to new watches but Rolex got it exactly right to put a full day and a date in a watch when they introduced this model in 1956. To produce it in only precious metals was another wise choice. The Day-Date just looks like a piece of wealth.
This watch which we’re offering is a modest one among Day-Dates. Do you want the story that comes with this watch but you don’t like to be seen with such a flashy yellow gold screamer on the wrist than this is the watch you’re looking for. The eye of an expert can tell right away this is a Day-Date by the presidential bracelet, however, in broad daylight it will not flash like it’s yellow gold cousins.
The looks of this watch are simply amazing. The fluted bezel is still sharp and the watch case is super tight, people have loved the oyster case for a long time and this 18k. white gold case is the best you can get. The original white gold bracelet has got very little stretch, for a ‘soft’ metal bracelet from 1966 this is quite a big extra. Furthermore, the bracelet developed a nice patina giving it a valued vintage character. The silver pie-pan dial is perfect for this piece, it has a very little spot on the 12 o’clock marker but it’s even bigger on the picture than on the bare eye, this is part of the vintage experience in our opinion… Come see this beauty for yourself.
