We're not going to bore you with the 'Think of the watch that a president would wear...' story. We want you to think about a watch that a sheikh would wear. A watch that has status, is associated with success, power, respect, luxury and to top it off, some diamonds and emeralds on the dial.  The Rolex Day-Date was the first automatic, waterproof chronometer wristwatch that indicated both, the date and the day of the week. The 182XX-series, the fifth generation of Day-Dates, were introduced in 1988 and the one we can offer you dates back to 1993. It houses the caliber 3155 that provides the watch with a double quickset-function. This means that the date, day and time all can be adjusted separately. This Day-Date has a champagne-gold string dial. It means that the dial has an outer string of diamonds for each minute and an inner string of emeralds for each hour. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal, which gives the watch a modern, fresh look. 

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 (yellow-, white- and rosegold or platinum). Its retail price was way costlier than any other Rolex model. However, due to its popularity among a lot of prestigious people, for example presidents (hence, its nickname), it became Rolex’ flagship model. Over the years this model has enjoyed associations with a wide variety of people, from world leaders, athletes, celebrities and mafiosi (like Tony Soprano). Regardless of the differences, they all had one thing in common: being successful in their area of expertise. Therefore, to this day the Day-Date is still synonymous with luxury, prestige, style and success. With exception of the most modern models, the Day-Date comes in at 36mm. Do you earn this watch?Reference 182XXThe 180XX references were replaced by the 182XX references in 1988. Again, a new technical era began for the Day-Date. The caliber 3155 got introduced, which provided the watch with a double quickset function. From now on, the date and day could be adjusted separately from the time making the Day-Date a very convenient watch.
