The Rolex Day-Date was affectionately nicknamed the "President" after is was gifted to President Dwight D. Eisenhower. It was rumored to be his favorite watch and was often photographed on his wrist throughout his presidency. The President is also synonymous with luxury and opulence and is made with some of the highest quality materials in the word. The 36mm yellow gold case is dripping in diamonds and is a welcome contrast to the stark black dial with yellow gold hour, minute, and sweeping seconds hands. The 18 karat yellow gold Oyster bracelet is the perfect compliment to the lavish design of this impressive wristwatch. The Day-Date displays the automatically changing date window along side the day's date, spelled out in its entirety.

I was looking for a gold president and was drawn to this particular one because of the diamond bezel, as it contrasted nicely with the dial. I went in to the Huntington Beach store location to see it in person, as I was a bit skeptical about buying a pre-owned watch. But, Larry was able to answer all of my questions, and the watch looked perfect. I can say that this president is a true statement piece.
