Day-Date 36Oyster, 36 mm, yellow gold

The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 in 18 ct yellow gold with a white mother-of-pearl, diamond-set dial, Fluted bezel and a diamond-set President bracelet.

The Day-Date was the first watch to indicate the day of the week spelt out in full when it was first presented in 1956.

Mother-of-Pearl Dial

Highlighting natural beauty

Mother-of-pearl is by its nature full of mystery and surprises. Depending on its origin, it can be pink, white, black or yellow. It differs in colour, intensity and structure according to the part of the shell from which it is extracted.
