A Day-Date is an amazing dress watch that looks good under any light, but here is how to rock it.
Gold Day-Date on the Wrist
Introduced in 1956, the Rolex Day-Date made a splashy debut in the watch world. Available in only 18-carat gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch of its kind to display the date and day of the week spelled out in full on the dial. Manufactured largely by hand, this everyman’s watch works for the daytime grind and evening play.
For a casual office look, pair the Day-Date with tan or beige khakis, and add a button-down in white with a wool sweater in hunter green or gray. Finish the look with Oxford wingtip dress shoes in tan or cognac. For an evening ensemble, try a sport coat, printed button-down left untucked and a pair of dark wash jeans. Add a cashmere scarf in gray or plaid to earn extra style credit.
Make your wrist stand out with the Day-Date.
