A legendary timepiece with an unrivaled history, the Rolex Day-Date has earned its place as "The Ultimate Watch of Prestige" from its decades on the wrists of the world's most influential people. Released in 1956, the Day-Date quickly became synonymous with luxury, prestige, and exclusivity thanks to being the watch of choice for the world's athletes, visionaries, and world leaders alike. Only ever constructed of precious metals, the Day-Date's aesthetic is that of sheer elegance and grace. Aside from the beautiful array of dial options that have been available over the decades, the Day-Date's most iconic piece of design is its three-piece "Presidential" or "President" bracelet. Forming the bedrock of its design, the Presidential bracelet has become synonymous with Rolex's flagship collection and their desire to create the very best and most iconic watches that the world has ever seen. With its timeless design and inescapable impact on horology, the Day-Date stands as a vivid reminder of just how successful they have been in realizing that very mission.

Watch is in excellent overall condition. Watch has surface wear on the case and bracelet. Scratches can be seen on the polished and brushed surfaces. The original diamond and emerald bezel has some scratches and small nicks around the edge. Dial shows some very minor signs of oxidation along the edge of the day window but the surface is nearly perfect. Bracelet has 24 links, 5 of which are removable. There is little stretch.
An exhibition of the skill within Rolex's gem-setting department, this example's emerald and diamond bezel and diamond dial are truly stunning and make the watch known as a special piece to anyone that sees it.
