Since its introduction in 1956, the inimitable Rolex Day-Date watch has made an indelible impression in the watch world. After several decades of development, Rolex perfected one of its most popular styles, the Day-Date, also known as “the President.” This moniker actually comes from the watch’s bracelet, which features three pieced, semi-circular links—a style that the watch brand uses exclusively for this model. Recognized everywhere as Rolex’s most iconic and luxurious model, this watch possesses many characteristics that make it worthy of its nickname. Their most well-known model is available in three different versions. First, the original 36mm size, the discontinued 41mm size, and the latest 40mm size. All Day-Date watches are crafted in solid platinum or 18k white, yellow, or rose gold.
President Day-Date 36mm
A favorite among 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 the watch enthusiast in your life. Anyone with knowledge of watches would surely appreciate the craftsmanship and design of these superior timepieces.
President Day-Date II 41mm
Rolex created a larger version of their most popular watch called the Day-Date II, launched in 2008. Sized at 41mm, it features a lavishly bold frame with increased resistance to abrasive shock and magnetic fields. The larger sized model was meant to represent the fortitude of the powerful men who wore it. Though this version is now discontinued, it is still considered a popular choice among Rolex aficionados, and pre-owned versions are available at our jewelry store.
President Day-Date 40mm
With a redesigned case at 40mm, the 2015 version of the Day-Date features new modifications and additional fine details that make this Rolex model really shine.
