The Rolex Day-Date made its debut in 1956. Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch chronometer to display the date and the day of the week spelt out in full in windows on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created specially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people.
