Rolex Day-Date Watches Online

A luxury wristwatch that first came onto the market in the late 1950s – with a 36mm case of yellow, white, or rose gold or as a platinum model with a domed bezel – the Rolex Day-Date is so-called because of its ability to display the day of the week as well as the date. The Day-Date has the date shown at the three o’clock position in common with other Rolex watches, such as the Datejust. However, the top of the dial is also given over to a section that will show whether or not it is Monday, Tuesday and so on. Importantly, Day-Date models do not only display English language names for the day of the week. Collectors should always establish whether or not another language is used for the day display. Nowadays, Day-Dates are manufactured by Rolex in 26 different languages, including Spanish, Dutch, Japanese, Latin, Arabic, German, Norwegian, Farsi, Swedish and Turkish, among others.

In 2008, Rolex came out with a model variant known as the Day-Date II. This is easily distinguishable from other Day-Date models, many of which preceded it, thanks to its 41mm case. By 2015, however, Rolex had switched production to the Day-Date 40 which has a slightly smaller, 40mm case. Note that Day-Date 36s – with the original case size – remain in production to this day. Numerous finishes have been available over the years, including fluted or diamond set bezels, pink gold versions and those made with rose gold or white gold, among the many variants around.
