The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 is crafted in 18 carat white gold with a magnificent olive green dial, fluted bezel and a ‘President’ bracelet.

It is equipped with a new-generation movement, calibre 3255, entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. The Rolex Day-Date was the first watch to indicate the day of the week spelt out in full, when it was first presented in 1956. rolex.com
