Watchuwant is now WatchBox! Subscribe for the best luxury watch content. The Rolex Day-Date "President" 18239 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 one tops all: it's an 18-karat white gold President with a meteorite dial graced with inset factory diamonds. Combine the above with applied white gold Arabic numeral minute markers and matching hands, and the result is a watch that impresses even seasoned connoisseurs of the Day-Date line. Meteorite dials are Rolex specialty. Hewn from a massive chunk of Gambian meteorite, the dials of these rare Rolex models exhibit the natural crystalline structure of iron formed in space. Each dial is cut, treated to avert corrosion, and features a unique crystal pattern that renders each example unique by default. That's right; each meteorite dial Rolex Day-Date is a piece unique. It's the ultimate combination of a universally-recognized icon and individualist style. With this meteorite President, the two are exclusive, not "mutually exclusive." A Rolex "President" bracelet in matching white 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. 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. This Rolex Day Date 18239 "President" in 18-karat white gold, with meteorite and diamond dial, is available with a full Rolex factory boxed set at: Instagram: WatchBox Reviews Channel: Video and content by Tim Mosso.
