The Rolex Day-Date made its debut in 1956. It was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week in full on a watch 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. The popularity of the President has remained unchanged since it’s introduction for reasons beyond it’s appeal to the rich and famous. Though it is a solid gold watch, it is remarkably subtle and comfortable and even low-key on the wrist.The 36mm case is solid 18kt yellow gold, as is the President bracelet. The champagne,Tapestry dial adds a touch of texture to an otherwise monochromatic presence. This watch has a production year of 1989 and is quite possible the cleanest, most well preserved bracelet and case combinations we have ever seen in a watch of this age. This watch comes with Rolex service papers from December of 2016 and a desirable period correct President box..
