Description

The Rolex Day Date has been one of the brand's most prestigious lineages since it was launched in 1956. Earning the "President" nickname from its popularity on the wrist of United States president Lyndon B. Johnson, the Rolex Day Date has had a strong presence in the White House since the 1960s. With chronometer-grade accuracy and complications displaying both the day of the week that spells out in full, this model is not only sought after for its elegance and heritage but also its practical use day to day.
