Notes

Rolex, “Day-Date”

The “Day-Date” model was launched in 1956. It is one of Rolex most coveted “classic” models – in opposition to the “sports” models.

Known as the wristwatch worn by presidents, hence its nickname “President”, it was the first water-resistant and self-winding chronometer wristwatch to offer a modern calendar with an instantaneous day display, spelt out in full in a window on the dial, in addition to the date.

Exclusively crafted in precious metals, very few watch models come close to the stature, eminence and timelessness of the Rolex “Day-Date”.
