The Best Looking Rolex Day-Dates You’ve Never Seen
In 1956, Rolex unveiled the Day-Date watch featuring its groundbreaking Datejust technology that was supplemented by the addition of a day window. From the get go, the Day-Date was manufactured in precious metals only, including yellow, white and pink gold and platinum. Whilst there had been some diamond setting on the earlier models, it was with the 1800 series, launched in 1960, that Rolex really began to experiment and push the boundaries.
