The Rolex Day-Date is one of the most recognizable and iconic luxury watches on the market. Released in 1956, the Day-Date was the first waterproof and self-winding watch to feature both a date display and day-of-week display. This classic timepiece has since been updated with modern features while still maintaining its classic design.

Design & Features

The Rolex Datejust 40 is available in either 18ct yellow gold, 18ct Everose gold, 18ct white gold, or platinum. It also features the option of a fluted, or gem set bezel which adds an extra dimension of style and elegance to this already timeless piece. The dial options include baton, Roman numeral or gem set hour markers, wih a Cyclops magnifying lens over the date window for easy reading. There are also a couple of equisite models which include a meteorite dial, or a pave gem set option. A day window that displays the day of the week written out in full. This feature was revolutionary when it was first introduced in 1956 as no other watch had ever included such detail before. In addition, this watch comes with an President bracelet that can be adjusted for comfort and style.

Movement & Precision

The Rolex Day-Date 40 is powered by an automatic movement, meaning that it never needs to be wound manually, charging itself through natural motion from your wrist. It also features Superlative Chronometer certification from Rolex, meaning that it meets their strict standards for accuracy and performance (+2/-2 seconds per day). The combination of its automatic movement and precision accuracy make this piece one of the best on the market today.

Durability & Quality

The Rolex Datejust 40 is designed with durability in mind—the case is waterproof up to 100 meters (330 feet) and has scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass covering its face for maximum protection against wear and tear. Additionally, every individual component of each watch is crafted with extreme attention to detail using only top quality materials so you can rest assured knowing that your purchase will last you many years to come!

Rolex has always been a hallmark of quality and craftsmanship, and that is no exception with the Rolex Day-Date. From its classic design to its reputation for being indestructible, the Rolex Day-Date 40 holds a place in history as one of the most recognizable timepieces ever produced. Its attractiveness is not limited to just looks; Rolex owners operate in the highest circles, making it the perfect accessory for people who need to exude success and confidence. With decades of iconic imagery associated with it, Rolex's Day-Date collection certainly lives up to its legacy as a timeless treasure.
