Day-Date 36Oyster, 36 mm, white gold

The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 in 18 ct white gold with a silver dial, Fluted bezel and a 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.

The Fluted Bezel

A Rolex signature

The Rolex fluted bezel is a mark of distinction. Originally, the fluting of the Oyster bezel had a functional purpose: it served to screw the bezel onto the case helping to ensure the waterproofness of the watch.
