Day-Date 40

Oyster, 40 mm, platinum

The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 in Platinum with a meteorite, diamond-set dial, Smooth 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.

Meteorite Dial

From across the Solar System

Meteorite comes from the heart of an asteroid or possibly even a planet that has exploded, propelling material across the Solar System until chance brings it into our planet’s orbit and gravity pulls it to Earth.
