Introduction

Uncompromising look and feel. If you desire one of the worlds most luxurious watches with a bright blue dial, this is your chance.The Importance of a Rolex Day-Date does not have to be stressed anymore. Everybody can figure out why this prestigious watch was nicknamed "The President". But it would take one hell of a outspoken President to flaunt this watch with outspoken dial colour. Not only is is bright blue, but due to enamel-like production method of these so-called "Stella-dials", they really shine. These dials are true collector pieces and especially if they are in bright colours and without any cracks in the surface. Lucky us we have this extraordinary well-kept example. Even all tritium plots are still present.Usually we can fill another paragraph talking about that magnificent movement and awesome bracelet with concealed clasp. But lets leave that for now, the importance is in the face...

Description

Rolex Day-DateIn 1956, Rolex introduced one the most iconic watches ever made: the Day-Date. The Day-Date was the first waterproof self-winding chronometer certified wristwatch with a day and date function. And to top it off, it was only available in gold or platinum! Rolex also designed a new three-link bracelet, known as the ‘President,’ to pair with this special watch. With exception of the most modern executions, the Day-Date comes exclusively in a 36mm case.This is the very essence of luxurious time-keeping. Thanks to its popularity among a lot of prestigious people (for example, lots of presidents, hence, its nickname), it became Rolex’ flagship model. Over the years this model enjoyed associations with various ‘kinds of people’, from celebrities to Mafiosi (like Tony Soprano). They had all one thing in common: being successful in their area of expertise. To this day the Day-date is still synonymous with prestige and style. With exception of the most modern models the Day-Date comes in at 36mm. Do you earn this watch?
