Let’s say you’ve settled on getting yourself a Rolex Day-Date, but you just can’t make up your mind: yellow-, rose-, or white gold. What’s a guy or gal to do? Well, how about all three? No, not three separate Day-Dates. All three colors in one neat package!There really isn’t a good explanation for why the ‘Tridor’ came to be, at least not one we’ve been able to ascertain. It rather seems to be the case of: "If we can do it, then why the f*ck not?" It’s hard to imagine that Rolex, known for its conservatism, would come up with this utterly weird hybrid of a Day-Date. But it really was available from the late 1970s until around the late 1990s.This reference 18239B ‘Tridor’ Day-Date features a 36 mm 18k white-gold case and crown mixed with an 18k yellow-gold fluted bezel. The iconic President bracelet, meanwhile, is executed in two 18k white-gold outer links and a center link that consists of alternating bands of rose-, yellow-, and white gold. The dial is executed in a classic champagne color that nicely matches the 18k yellow-gold baton hands. Moreover, the traditional applied stick markers are replaced by factory-set brilliant cut diamonds and alternating baguette cut diamonds at the 6 and 9 o’clock positions. The watch dates back to 1993 and runs on the update caliber 3155 automatic movement, with a convenient double quickset function to independently adjust the day and date mechanisms.

Introduction

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.
