The Rolex Day-Date is the watch that addresses the imagination more than some other model from their assortment. It is the watch worn by Presidents, CEOs, entertainers, sports individuals thus on.
By claiming a Rolex Day-Date yourself (on the off chance that you don’t can be categorized as one of the classifications above), you could possibly think (or fantasize) that you are in an incredible company. Other than all that identifies with the picture of the Rolex Day-Date, it is only one hell of a watch. Magnificent plan, just accessible in valuable metals (better believe it definitely, they did a couple protos in steel) and with a wide variety of dial designs. Despite the fact that Rolex likewise presented it in 41mm – stopped meanwhile – and in 40mm, the Day-Date was and still is consistently accessible in 36mm too. This year, Rolex presents a number new Day-Date 36 varieties. Maybe for me, other than the new Datejust 36 ( covered here ), the best from Rolex in Baselworld.
Rolex Day-Date 36
In this ‘Hot Take’ we investigate a portion of the new Rolex Day-Date 36 models and show you what has changed with this new form. Other than the new dial varieties, the greatest news is maybe the little difference in plan for the situation and the new development (type 3255).
Compared to the earlier Day-Date watches in 36mm, the new reference(s) have a case profile that’s more inconspicuous and exquisite. We couldn’t compare it live to an earlier Day-Date reference ourselves yet we will do so whenever we get the chance. The new caliber 3255 is much the same as the new type for the Datejust (3235) and GMT-Master II (3285) a development that has a more severe guideline (- 2/+2 seconds out of each day by and large). It appears Rolex is updating the entirety of their type 31xx developments now. It has the Chronergy escapement, Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex safeguards to guarantee more exact timekeeping, and being less helpless for attraction and stuns. Besides, Rolex expands the force hold to 70 hours for these type 32xx movements.
Although I puzzle over whether the majority of the Rolex Day-Date 36 customers truly care about the development that is inside, it is quite possibly the main changes to me. Rolex developments are entirely solid and I like the way that they (actually) put such a lot of energy into ceaseless advancement of them. For some customers however, the oddity is the new case plan and the new dial combinations.
I chose a couple of Rolex Day-Date 36 models in white gold, yellow gold and pink (Everose) gold to show to you. All models have the popular ‘President’ bracelet.
Yellow Gold Reference 128238
The first new Rolex Day-Date 36 in my little outline is reference 128238 and furthermore my top pick of the bundle. A yellow gold Rolex Day-Date 36 with a very decent green dial which is alluded to by Rolex as their Green ombré dial. Ombré is French for ‘shaded’ and by taking a gander at the dial you will promptly understand. The dial of the green Day-Date 36 is set with 10 diamonds.
The retail cost of this Rolex Day-Date 36 ref.128238 is CHF33,000.- Swiss Francs.
Everose Gold 128235
Close to my prefered reference above in yellow gold is this Day-Date 36 with reference 128235 in Everose gold. Rolex’s own combination for pink gold that guarantees a more extended enduring pink tone. It was acquainted with the market in 2005 and have been applied to numerous Rolex models, including sports models (one of my top picks being the GMT-Master in Everose gold ). Here we discover the dial to be in an earthy colored ombré set with 10 jewels. A staggering combination, however I end up loving the particular green shade of the reference 128238. I’ve been looking on the Rolex site to check whether I could arrange this Everose form with the green ombré dial, however I immediately understood that it doesn’t work out (or is being offered), as the jewel settings are in coordinating shade of the gold case.
The retail cost of this Rolex Day-Date 36 ref.128235 is CHF35,600.- Swiss Francs.
White Gold 128349RBR & 128349RBR
Two variants of the Rolex Day-Date 36 in white gold are the references 128349RBR and 128349RBR. The first has a pink opal dial and has been set with precious stone hour markers. Hour markers in 18 carat gold set with 32 precious stones, Roman VI and IX in 18 carat gold set with 24 jewels. The Opal dial is remarkable to each watch, as each cut from opal will appear to be unique. The subsequent one, with reference 128349RBR, is completely cleared with precious stones. Other than the jewel cleared dial, the hour markers are set with rainbow shaded sapphires. This ‘Rainbow’ form likewise comes with a precious stone set President bracelet.
