Interesting facts about Rolex Day Date

The Rolex Day Date was launched in 1956. It was the first self-winding and waterproof chronometer watch that has a modern calendar. It’s called the Day Date because apart from displaying the date, it also has an instantaneous day display that you can see in full in a window on the dial. It’s indeed an innovative watch with features that are ahead of their time. And because it’s from Rolex, you can be sure that it’s a very reliable watch. It’s exceptionally precise and it looks very prestigious. It’s no wonder that it has become the ultimate status watch for many.

One of the things that you need to know about the Day Date is that it’s multilingual. Apart from English, it’s also available in 25 other languages. The watch can even tell you the date in different languages. This is part of the effort of Rolex to be more inclusive. But it has also increased the international appeal of the watch. It’s one of the reasons why it’s popular even with people who don’t speak English or those who are not native English speakers.


The Day Date is also available in many different faces. Many people know it as being a formal watch with a simple dial. But it’s actually available in different dials and some of them are very creative. The President model, for example, originally comes with a plain white dial.
