Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf, like no other company, the success of the Rolex wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex’s innovations and the genius of its creator. These innovations include their famous “Oyster” case — the world’s first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their “Perpetual” — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933.

When it was created in 1956, the Day-Date was the first automatic, water-resistant, chronometric wristwatch to feature a modern calendar that instantly displays the day in letters and the date in openings on the dial. The Day-Date, both elegant and proof of horological innovation, is without any doubt one of the greatest Rolex’s achievements. Combining elegance, sophistication, and robustness, it was the handy companion of some of the most important characters of the 20th century.

This Rolex Day-Date bearing the reference 18239 dates from the 1990s. Made in white gold, this 36mm it is one of those watches that are unanimously appreciated for the sophistication of its simplicity. The watch is composed of a fluted bezel and a silver dial sublimated by factory diamonds indexes including 2 baguette diamonds at 6 and 9 o’clock.

True to the purity of the whole, the watch is dressed with non-luminous hands, the date window at 3 o’clock and the day indication in English at 12 o’clock.

Mechanically, the watch is powered by the company’s trusty caliber 3155, known for its reliability and precision.

Finally, the watch comes with its original 18k white gold “President” bracelet with a hidden clasp in near perfect condition.
