Ref 228238

Today, we have a closer look at the Rolex that is the most Rolex of all Rolexes. The Rolex Day-Date on its fantastic President bracelet. The one we are looking at has a 40 mm oyster case in yellow gold.

Love it or hate it, Let’s jump into all the details right now:

The day-date boasts s a  Monobloc middle case, screw-down case back and screw down winding crown. With this and its twin lock double waterproofness system, the watch is waterproof to 100 meters. As you would expect here, the crystal is scratch resistant sapphire and you also have that iconic cyclops lens over the date. Available with a wide variety of dials, the one we are looking at has a silver, diagonal motif dial. The bezel as you can see is fluted and of course also gold. 

More precious metal when looking at the bracelet, not just any bracelet but the president bracelet. Arguably the nicest bracelet in the known universe.  It features semi circular three-piece links, with a gorgeous concealed folding crown clasp. The bracelet is armed with ceramic coated pins to avoid that dreaded bracelet stretch over time. On the inside and not visible through the caseback is the caliber 3255. A Perpetual, mechanical, self-winding movement with a 70 hour power reserve.
