The Rolex Day-Date is also known as the President as it has been seen on the wrist of many US Presidents over the years. Numerous CEOS, film stars, sports personalities, luminaries and celebrities have also favoured the Day-Date and the model is still to this day seen as the pinnacle of the Rolex range. Day-Dates have recently seen a spike in popularity of both gold (yellow, white and rose) bracelets as well as on leather straps. We consider this model to be the most practical dress watch available as it can also be worn day to day. Day-Dates have also recently attracted significant attention from collectors and prices have steadily increased.
