Hans Wilsdorf is the man behind the creation of the popular watch brand Rolex. With its exquisite designs and innovative technology, the timepieces from Rolex have made a special place in the hearts of watch enthusiasts.
Considered the most prestigious Rolex model, the Rolex Day-Date M118238-83208 CHAMP ROMAN is the first calendar timepiece to have the day as well as the date displayed upon the dial in full. It has a round dial with a monobloc middle case. The case is made of 18 ct yellow gold, which gives this timepiece its elegance. This exquisite appearance is further augmented through the fluted bezel that is also made of the same material.
The monotone of the watch retained through the use of a champagne coloured dial displays the watch to the best effect. Roman numerals in gold represent the position of the hours. The bracelet of the watch is the universal flat three piece link construction, which is a characteristic of the Oyster Perpetual range. Safety of the timepiece is assured through a folding and concealed crown clasp. The small crown motif that acts as the opening and closing lever adds to the beauty of the concealed clasp. A sapphire crystal, which is scratch resistant, protects the dial from damage through dust or scratches.
The specialty of displaying the date and day in full is a defining characteristic of this watch. The date is positioned next to the 3 o’clock position in the same way as for other Rolex watches. A day window is displayed over the 12 o’clock position, which displays the day in words. Instantaneous change of date and day occurs automatically and simultaneously at the stroke of midnight. The patented Cyclops glass over the day-date function magnifies the numbering by two and half times their actual size, allowing easy reading. This chronograph is Swiss certified and has a caliber of 3155 and a self-winding movement. A Parachrom hairspring gives added resilience and greater accuracy to the watch. Presence of a screw down back cover, winding crown and a twin lock offers this piece a water resistance of 100 metres.
Day-Date was launched by Rolex in 1956, and was the first watch to display both the day and date. The watches have the day of the week shown in full alphabets and are available in a wide variety of languages.
The Day-Date watches come in 18 carat gold, and 950 platinum with smooth, fluted, or gem studded bezels, giving an array of options to its patrons. There are unique dials in refined colours with the date display at the 3 o’clock position and the day display at the 12 o’clock position. The patented Cyclop lens is situated above the day window, like all other Rolex watches for your ease of viewing. This lens is also made of shatterproof sapphire crystal rendering it scratch resistant. The Oyster case in the collection has a fluted screwed down caseback. The winding crown features the twinlock system, which renders the watch waterproof up to 100 metres. Thus you can wear the timepiece while snorkelling or pool-side swimming. Select watches from this collection have alligator leather straps with an 18 carat gold Crownclasp while the others have Oyster metal bracelets with flat three-piece links or President metal bracelets with semi circular three-piece links and a concealed Crownclasp. The Calbre 3155, a self-winding mechanical movement, powers the watches in the Day-Date collection.
The Rolex Day-Date watches have been worn by many celebrities in various movies including Alec Baldwin in Glengarry and Ray Liotta in Goodfellas.
