A landmark in the history of time measurement.
The Rolex Day-Date is all about prestige since its introduction in 1956. The president of Rolex watches was the first watch ever to come onto the market with a full day of the week written on the 12 o’clock side, next to the date-function on the 3 o’clock. The Day-Date was only built with prestigious metal, and this piece we’re offering is built with 18k. white gold all the way. Even though this is a very luxurious material to built a watch with, it should not be the main reason for anyone to buy this watch. The looks and timelessness of this watch are the reasons that will persuade you to choose this watch instead of others.
The white gold case is impeccable and is complemented by its sharp fluted bezel. With a size of 36mm. this watch is elegant on any wrist, even more elegant and modest than its yellow gold relatives because you wouldn’t see right away this is a gold Rolex. The total composition of this watch is what makes it so beautiful and desirable, in particular, the ‘Buckley’-dial. The snow white dial with black printed Roman numerals is a highly sought-after dial in among Rolex enthusiasts. This dial got its nickname because of the American Rolex collector John Buckley. In the 70s the Roman printed dials weren’t too popular but Mr. Buckley did like them and started collecting them, and eventually trading them. In the 21st century, the Buckley dials came back into fashion and became a much-appreciated characteristic again.
The dial in this Day-Date is perfect and a pleasure to look at. The automatic movement still runs perfect and this timeless chronometer certified watch is equipped with a black leather strap. Visit our store in the Reestraat, Amsterdam, and see whether this Day-Date fits your wrist.
