The yellow gold 40mm version of the 2016 Day-Date also has 48 brilliant cut diamonds on the bezel as well as hour markers made of baguette diamonds and rubies. Paired with their iconic president bracelet, this Rolex reflects the appetite for diamonds that is often seen in custom Rolexes featured in fashion editorials and red carpets.

This superlative chronometer is equipped with Rolex's 3255 movement. It has a power reserve of 70 hours and is water resistant up to 100 meters. Known as the 'President's Watch,' this Day-Date is one of the most extravagant of the 2016 model configurations.
