Don’t confuse this watch with our lunch order of salmon fillet with a fragrant ginger and soy sauce glaze, served with a side of fried rice.We love white gold for its understated luxurious look. But understated in no way equals mediocre. This ref. 18239 Day-Date is the perfect example. It’s the one we’ve offered with a Chinese day and date disc. Moreover, the watch features a rare salmon no-lume dial with applied 18k white gold Roman numerals and a matching closed (no-lume) 18k white gold handset. If you look closely at the dial, you’ll see that the number 4 is written as ‘IIII’ instead of the traditional ‘IV’. This is not a mistake, but is referred to as the ‘watchmaker’s four’ because it gives the watch dial a visually pleasing symmetry.The 36 mm case is executed in 18k white gold and comes with a matching white gold President bracelet and concealed clasp. The case and the bracelet are in impeccable condition, making this the sharpest white gold Day-Date we’ve had in a long time.The watch dates back to 1996 and features the updated caliber 3155 automatic movement with the convenient double-quickset function to separately adjust the day and date discs. Now you’ll just have to learn Mandarin and you’re set to go!


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.
