The Day-Date earned its nickname the "President" after it was photographed on the wrist of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Since that time, it has become a world-renowned symbol of power and luxurious style. The reference 18048 that is offered here today lives up to that reputation with the addition of an 18 karat yellow gold Oyster case, fluted bezel, President bracelet, and Fliplock clasp. The 36mm Oyster case is equipped with a waterproof screw-down crown, allowing it to venture as deep as 100 meters below the surface of the ocean. This kind of resistance allows you to wear your Day-Date anywhere with confidence, without damaging the calibre 3155 perpetual movement and double Quickset function within. This men's Rolex also offers a striking design with the addition of a contrasting black dial set with Gold Roman hour markers and sweeping hands.

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.
