Style of the Day-Date II
The Day-Date II is a highly precious object. A hallmark of its nobility, its Oyster case is produced exclusively in 950 platinum or in 18 ct gold. The bezel can be fluted, smooth or, on the gem-set version, arrayed in the most beautiful of precious stones, while a choice of unique dials in refined colours and textures allows the perfect match between this most exclusive of watches and the character, tastes and requirements of its owner.
Function of the Day-Date II
Presented in 2008, the Day-Date II, with its bigger case, builds on the exclusive heritage of the original Day-Date, the first watch to indicate the day of the week spelt out in full. Worn by world leaders, the Day-Date II’s arc-shaped day display is available in a wide choice of languages. Its ingenious engineering ensures that the day and date change simultaneously and instantaneously at midnight, in keeping with uncompromising Rolex quality standards.

This metal bracelet with semi-circular three piece links was created in 1956 for the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date. Representing the ultimate in refinement and comfort, and made of carefully selected precious metals, the President bracelet was specifically designed for the exclusive Day-Date.
It is also available on some versions of the Datejust
in precious metals. The President bracelet is fitted
with a concealed Crownclasp.
The Oyster case is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). Its middle case is crafted exclusively from a solid block of 950 platinum or 18 ct gold. The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Rolex.
Another core component in the watertight structure is the winding crown fitted with the patented Twinlock double waterproofness system, which screws down securely against the case. The sapphire crystal is clamped tight by the bezel. The Oyster case provides the high-precision Rolex movement with optimal protection from water, dust, pressure and shocks.
