Description

The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 in 18K yellow gold with champagne color diamond-set dial, fluted bezel and a President bracelet. The Day-Date was the first watch to indicate the day of the week spelled out in full when it was first presented in 1956.


This Day-Date dial features 10 baguette-cut diamonds. The sunray finish creates delicate light reflections on many dials in the Oyster Perpetual collection. It is obtained using masterful brushing techniques that create grooves running outwards from the center of the dial. Light is diffused consistently along each engraving, creating a characteristic subtle glow that moves depending on the position of the wrist. Once the sunray finish has been completed, the dial color is applied using Physical Vapour Deposition or electroplating. A light coat of varnish gives the dial its final look. Oyster 18K yellow gold case case in 40mm diameter, water resistance 100 meters, Rolex caliber 3255 automatic self-winding movement. Power reserve approximately 70 hours. President bracelet with semi-circular three-piece links. This watch comes with full set box and paper.
