A yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is a COSC certified, self-winding chronometer manufactured by Rolex. Initially presented in 1956, the Day-Date was the first watch to display the date, as well as the day, in its entirety.[1] The Day-Date is one of Rolex's watches that is made only in solid 18k yellow gold, 18k white gold, 18k everose gold (Rolex's version of 18k rose gold) and platinum (PT950).[2] Additionally Rolex manufactures a specific bracelet only available for the Day-Date line, the President bracelet. Due to the name of this bracelet, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is commonly referred to as "Rolex president" or "presidential Rolex".
