Since its introduction in 1956, the inimitable Rolex watch has made an indelible impression in the watch world. After several decades of developments, Rolex perfected one of its most popular styles, the Day-Date, also known as “the President.” Recognized everywhere as the company’s most iconic and luxurious model, it conveys many traits that represent the nickname it was given. This well-known watch was recently made in three different versions. First the original 36mm size, the discontinued 41mm size and the latest, which is a 40mm size. All Day-Date watches are crafted in solid platinum or 18k white, yellow, or rose gold.
President Day-Date 36mm
A favorite amongst kings and presidents, celebrities, and Rolex enthusiasts, the Day-Date is famous for being the first wristwatch that displayed the day of the week written in full, along with the date and time. That this timeless treasure is still in production today is a testament to its worldly appeal, and makes it the perfect piece for one that truly appreciates traditional values.
President Day-Date II 41mm
Rolex made a larger version called the Day-Date II, launched in 2008. Sized at 41mm, it provides a lavishly bold frame with increased resistance to abrasive shock and magnetic fields. This now-discontinued version is still recognized as a popular choice amongst Rolex aficionados, and pre-owned versions are available at our store.
President Day-Date 40mm
With a redesigned case at 40mm, the 2015 version of the Day-Date features more renovations and its fine details make this Rolex watch shine. The newest Rolex Day-Date is also equipped with the Swiss watchmaker’s latest mechanical automatic movement. This ultimate version provides incredible qualities to admire and reliability to last a lifetime.
