Rolex Day-Date METEORITE And Factory Applied Diamond Hour Markers Dial - Platinum 36mm Case – Reference - 118206
Offered here is a superb example of the very rare Rolex Day-Date, in Platinum with METEORITE and Factory Applied Diamond Dial hour markers At 6 And 9 O’clock reference 118206 manufactured circa 2000.
The Day-Date range has historically been a template for Rolex to display unbound creativity. As a result, Rolex went well beyond its usual bounds by experimenting with different dials and the Day-Date can also be found with various dial options, inclusive of Onyx, wood, lacquer, fossil, marble, and coral.
The Rolex Day-date is considered a vital watch in the Rolex calibre evolution. Its manufacturing became the draw of the most horological research and development for Rolex probably since the days of developing the watertight Oyster case. This was due to the additional strain on the movement relating to the day disc which needed to change once every 24 hours along with the date at midnight – this may sound like a small action, but the additional calibration of cogs, wheels and springs was not a simple addition when attempting to retain chronometer grade timekeeping.
Another impressive general fact about the Day-date is that the presidential bracelet was developed with great attention for its release. The presidential bracelet’s concentric rounded links replaced the famous flat oyster links. As of 1969, the presidential bracelet was made with a hidden clasp giving it a more jewellery-like feel with continuous links around the wrist and no visible sport deployment. Ostentatiously designed, often with diamond-set dials, the Day-date has been loved by leaders and stars throughout the decades famously including (the interesting mix of) President Johnson, Fidel Castro, JFK, Jay Z, and our favourite fictional gangster Tony Soprano.
