Now that the holidays are officially behind us, we can focus our attention on the world’s most romantic holiday: Valentine’s Day.

Matching Rolex Watches are cute so be sure to impress her this year.
With several variations of each Rolex model, his and hers Rolex watches are relatively easy to come by. Whether you’re looking for a pair of Yacht-Master sports watches or his and hers Rolex timepieces in matching metal finishes, there is bound to be a his and hers set in the Rolex catalog to suit your style as a couple. Today we’ll explore the option of purchasing a Lady-Datejust and men’s Day-Date in a striking white gold finish and the ways that they complement each other.
The Lady-Datejust 179179 has a clean look and can be worn as a daily.
The Lady-Datejust 179179
A beautiful white gold ladies Rolex to consider is the Lady-Datejust ref. 179179. A recent addition to the Rolex catalog, this ladies reference boasts a long list of modern features, including a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a Twinlock screw-down crown, and a calibre 2235 perpetual movement. The movement itself is a Swiss certified chronometer and beats at a frequency of 28,800 bph for a highly reliable reading. A Quickset function is built into the movement, allowing the wearer to adjust the date aperture with a simple twist of the crown.
Whether you want to match or not the Lady-Datejust 179179 is a keeper.
The Lady-Datejust ref. 179179 is available in several feature sets including a fluted bezel or a bezel set with diamonds. Either a flat link Oyster bracelet or a three-link President bracelet always accompanies the case. The ref. 179179 is crafted from 18 karat white gold in a satin and high-polish finish. Rolex gold is highly regarded among collectors for its value and impeccable quality. Forged in-house, Rolex has complete control over the alloys used while producing the gold used in each Rolex watch. The infamous Swiss watchmaker is also one of the few luxury brands that boasts homogenous gold or “Grey Gold”; meaning that even if you scratch your Lady-Datejust 179179, there will be more white gold beneath the surface. The case or bracelet will never be an inferior metal plated with gold.
The men can opt-in for a larger watch to match their lady.
The Day-Date 118209
The particular mens Rolex Day-Date ref. 118209 that is featured here today complements the Lady-Datejust 179179 beautifully. Both watches take advantage of Rolex’s impeccable “Grey Gold” finish and feature sleek, flat-link Oyster bracelets and similar grey dials topped with applied white gold Roman hour markers and central hands. The ladies Rolex that is featured here today boasts a fluted bezel, while the mens Date-Date utilizes a more masculine domed bezel, giving each watch its own character. The men’s reference 118209 is from the Day-Date family and displays both a date and day aperture on its dial, while the ladies Datejust offers only a date display.
Aside from the obvious difference in size as well as a few other small differences, the Lady-Datejust and mens Day-Date watches that are showcased here offer almost an identical feature set. When coupled with valuable materials and the luxurious style that the Rolex brand is known for, this handsome pair is sure to take your breath away this Valentine’s Day, or you can opt for matching straps, but a matching Rolex watch might be better.
