The Rolex Day-Date made its debut in 1956. It was the first wristwatch to show the date and day of the week displayed in full view on the dial. The elegant design and precious metals conspired to make the Day-Date a most desirable wristwatch among celebrities and highly influential people. The watch quickly earned it’s nickname, The President, due to this impressive and powerful affiliation. Perhaps the most famous, and infamous example of this is the watch given to John F. Kennedy as a gift from Marilyn Monroe. Truly the epitome of classic style, and for many the definition of success, this Rolex President speaks volumes with a single glance. Though it is constructed of solid 18 kt white gold, this modern version, with its 41mm case is remarkably subtle and comfortable on the wrist. When you put this watch on, you instantly feel the history and posh lifestyle affiliated with the brand. This watch comes original box and papers.
