http://www.thewatchbox.com/watches/rolex/ The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date "President" is an icon that transcends time and fashion. Little changed since its 1956 debut, the Day-Date is the flagship of the Rolex model line. Think about that; the ultimate watch in the world's most coveted watch lineup. This Rolex Day-Date 118205 one tops all: it's an 18-karat rose gold President with a rich white lacquer dial. Combine the above with applied Rolex Everose 18-Karat rose gold Arabic numeral minute markers and matching hands, and the result is a watch that impresses even seasoned connoisseurs of the Day-Date line. Exquisite dials are Rolex specialty. The Geneva icon is one of the few watch manufacturers that produces its dials in-house, and exotic treatments are “house” specialty. Rolex has worked with meteorite, malachite, lapis, wood, porcelain, and countless others, but few of these can match the visual luster and depth of this Day-Date’s white lacquer dial. And this gloss white dial is framed by an unusual bezel with exceptional character: the domed “code 0” model. The “0” in the Rolex reference number denotes the seamless rose gold ring that sets this Day-Date apart from its fluted fellows in the Rolex catalog. For collectors who prefer their watches to stand out from the crowd, this Day-Date 118205 is the ultimate combination of a universally-recognized Rolex icon and individualist style possessed by few other “Presidents.” A Rolex "President" bracelet in matching Everose rose gold features the famous three-link design and seamless Crownclasp. The only cue as to the location of the clasp is a discreet five-point Rolex coronet that can be used to open the mechanism. This example features solid end links, solid center links, and the latest articulated-crown variant of the Crownclasp; together, these features add substance and heft to the feel of the latest generation Day-Date. Inside the belly of the beast, an automatic Rolex caliber 3155 provides chronometer-grade timing accuracy with Rolex durability. The convenient double-quickset feature enables a user to set both day and date indications from the second crown position without endlessly cycling the hands.
