Rolex Day Date 40 228239 Olive Dial


Regular price $52,500.00 SGD
  • The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 in 18 ct white gold with an olive-green dial, Fluted bezel and a President bracelet.

    The Day-Date was the first watch to indicate the day of the week spelt out in full when it was first presented in 1956.

    THE FLUTED BEZEL A ROLEX SIGNATURE

    The Rolex fluted bezel is a mark of distinction. Originally, the fluting of the Oyster bezel had a functional purpose: it served to screw the bezel onto the case helping to ensure the waterproofness of the watch. It was therefore identical to the fluting on the case back, which was also screwed onto the case for waterproofness, using specific Rolex tools. Over time, the fluting became an aesthetic element, a genuine Rolex signature feature. Today the fluted bezel is a mark of distinction, always in gold.

    THE ULTIMATE REFINEMENT

    The design, development and production of Rolex bracelets and clasps, as well as the stringent tests they face, involve advanced high technology. And, as with all the components of the watch, aesthetic controls by the human eye guarantee impeccable beauty. The President bracelet, with its semi-circular three piece links, was created in 1956 for the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date. It represents the ultimate in refinement and comfort and is always made of carefully selected precious metals.

    OLIVE GREEN DIAL

    A WATCHMAKING TECHNIQUE

    The sunray finish on Rolex dials is a predominant method in watchmaking of achieving pure metallic colour dials such as shades of silver grey, rhodium or ruthenium. Silver-plating is mostly used as a base layer for the sunray finish, where further colour is added to the prepared dial. Sometimes colours such as champagne are achieved through electroplating with more than half a dozen different metals.

    18 CT WHITE GOLD

    COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE

    By operating its own exclusive foundry, Rolex has the unrivalled ability to cast the highest quality 18 ct gold alloys. According to the proportion of silver, copper, platinum or palladium added, different types of 18 ct gold are obtained: yellow, pink or white. They are made with only the purest metals and meticulously inspected in an in-house laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment, before the gold is formed and shaped with the same painstaking attention to quality. Rolex's commitment to excellence begins at the source.
