The Origins Of The Presidential Watch

The Rolex Day-Date was a sensation even before it was introduced in 1956. Before it became the "President's Watch," the Rolex Day-Date symbolized the pinnacle of Rolex's watchmaking ability - after decades of innovation. The Rolex Day-Date became the first waterproof self-winding chronograph to indicate the day of the week in 26 different languages, thus demonstrating its versatility. These were the other elements that made it a Rolex. Not surprisingly, the watch became the choice of many leaders, Titans, royalty and celebrities. How exactly did the Rendezvous become a "presidential watch"? We present to you an important milestone in its 61-year history: it dates back to the 1950s. Rolex then presented General Dwight D. Eisenhower with the 150,000th chronograph - the Rolex Datejust in 18k gold. A year later, Eisenhower was elected President of the United States. At his inauguration, he wore a Rolex Gold, which also appeared on the cover of Life magazine. This helped raise Rolex's profile in the world of watch collecting. In 1956, Rolex patented and presented one of the most successful replica watches of all time: the Day-Date. It was the first astronomical watch to display the date and day of the week in its entirety . It would become the timepiece of choice for many leaders and diplomats. In the same year, Rolex released an advertisement with the slogan "The man who guides the destiny of the world wearing a Rolex watch". The image of the watch as the leader's watch of choice was further consolidated. In 1963, Lyndon B. Johnson became the first U.S. president to actually wear a Rolex on his anniversary. Johnson wore an 18-carat gold model. The watch was so widely photographed that it would become one of his trademarks. Soon after, Rolex began referring to the Day-Date bracelet as the "President" bracelet. The five-piece circular link gave the watch a stylish look which was far more suitable for business or formal wear. During Johnson's tenure, Rolex released the slogan "The Presidents' Watch" - suggesting that several presidents had worn it and further emphasizing its connection to the Oval Office. It wasn't until 1986 that Rolex officially added the word "President" to the Day-Date name. For the first time, the advertisement referred to the "Day-Date" as the "Rolex President Day-Date Chronometer". Many improvements have been made over the years (such as the "Quick Set" function in the 1970s and the improved solid bracelet in the 2000s), but the design has remained true to its roots. Over the years, it would also prove that in addition to Johnson, several U.S. presidents have indeed proudly worn the Rolex Anniversary - including Kennedy, Ford, Reagan, Nixon and Roosevelt - and even world leaders like the Dalai Lama. For a watch crafted by the world's leading watchmakers, it's no surprise that leaders, diplomats and presidents themselves have chosen to wear the Rolex President's Day-Date.

Day-Date 40

While the Rolex Day-Date (aka Rolex President) has been around since 1956, the replica Day-Date 40 is a much younger creation that was launched at Baselworld in 2015. Needless to say, the Day-Date 40 has all the same DNA as the original Day-Date. it's just a more refined, more powerful version. Like all Rolex Presidents, the Day-Date 40 is made only of precious metals. You have platinum, yellow gold, white gold and rose gold, just like the watch seen here. The Day-Date 40 is the ultimate prestige watch. In fact, it is more than a watch, it is a status symbol. Owning a Day-Date 40 is a direct reflection of success, sophistication and style. Currently, Rolex produces the replica Day-Date President Watch in two sizes, the classic 36mm and the 40mm Day-Date 40. The Day-Date 40 is the successor to the Day Day Day II (41mm) in 2015. Keeping up with the times, Rolex knew the 40mm Day-Date was a must. Today, people want bigger watches, and this applies to formal watches. This is just a modernized version of the classic 36mm Rolex President. Nothing has changed except the proportions and a few new innovations ...... While the Day-Date II (41mm) is popular, Rolex probably felt it was too big. For those used to the 36mm Day-Date, the size of the 40mm case is an easier jump than the 41mm case. 1mm may not seem like much, but in the Rolex realm, it means a lot. All in all, if you are looking for an absolutely stunning, undeniably modern and exceptionally functional formal watch that is instantly recognizable no matter where you are on the planet, then the replica Day-Date 40 is the best. No other model has the classic and cultural heritage of the Day-Date President. It truly is the president of dress replica watches.
