  • Product Notes

    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. Powered by Rolex Calibre 3055, this rare example of reference 18079 features a rubellite dial with baguette-cut diamonds at six and nine o' clock. The '7' in the reference number refers to the bark-effect finish on the bezel and centre links of the President bracelet.
    The hard stone dials from Rolex are highly desirable and this one is in exceptionally good condition. Both the day and date windows on the dial are subtle in colouration, complimenting the creamy yellow patina on the hands. A fifth-generation Day-Date movement, the calibre 3055 is known for its quickset function that allows the wearer to adjust the date aperture on the dial with a quick twist of the crown.
