There’s something uniquely satisfying about wearing a platinum Day-Date. It’s the perfect under the radar choice while simultaneously feeling extra luxurious.

Much of that feeling has to do with the added heft of the platinum material compared to a ‘regular’ Day-Date. Platinum is 34% heavier than 18k gold and that immediately translates to a more substantial wrist experience. At the same time, the cool look of platinum ensures it doesn’t attract too much attention. We call that stealth wealth.

That under the radar sensibility is enhanced by the classic domed bezel and the classic silvered case. At the same, some precautions have to be taken to ensure it isn’t too basic. This is a Day-Date after all. Well, the diamond indices will do that for ya. More importantly, diamond indices on platinum Day-Dates are slightly larger than on gold ones, ensuring that true connoisseurs will instantly recognize what you’re wearing.

This stunning 18206 dates back to 1989 and is powered by the upgraded caliber 3155 automatic movement with a convenient quickset function to separately adjust the day and date functions. The 36 mm platinum case features a stainless steel crown and is in sharp condition. The matching President bracelet is executed in platinum as well and comes with the iconic concealed Rolex clasp.

Introduction

Rolex Day-DateThe very essence of luxurious time-keeping, provided with a day and date function. It was launched in 1956 as a niche model and was only produced in precious metals, the retail price was way costlier than previous models. However, due to its popularity among a lot of prestigious people (for example a lot of Presidents, hence its nickname/ bracelet name), 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?
