It isn't difficult to imagine that some of the most powerful figures of the modern era sported Rolex watches. The sense of class, complete mastery of engineering, and timelessness are all important sentiments to those in positions of power and great responsibility. Eisenhower, JFK, and LBJ all donned the Oyster Perpetual President Day-Date, rightfully making the watch a true piece of American history. It certainly sounds grandiose, but then again, it's what defines the Rolex brand. Fortunately, you don't have to hold the position of Commander in Chief to own a watch as stunning as the classic Day-Date or Day-Date II.
For a moment, let's put aside the fact that some of the century's most revered icons made the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date their watch of choice. Let's also ignore the time-tested Rolex engineering and functional brilliance. Even without these benchmarks, we are left with a watch whose aesthetic has the power to catch the eye and never let go. This is evidenced by the Day-Date and Day-Date II collections being manufactured primarily from gold and platinum, the finest and most precious of metals. As far as colors go, you can choose from solid 18k yellow gold, 18k white gold, 18k rose gold, and even platinum. Additionally, a wide array of dial choices are available, from the sleek ice blue to the ornate 18k gold. Housed in the classic oyster cases, the 36mm Day-Date and 41mm Day-Date II continue the line of Rolex excellence.
As a testament to Rolex's commitment to innovation, these watches were the first of their kind to display both the day and date on its face, offering the rare combination of convenience and luxury. The original President Day-Date watch took advantage of the automatic winding technology of the day and the Day Date II carries on the tradition. Automatic, self-winding, and calibrated by a multi-function screw-down crown, these watches all adhere to Rolex's famous in-house engineering. Allow yourself to live in the history of this timeless collection by carrying on the Perpetual Oyster Day-Date tradition.
