Rolex Day Date 40 60th Anniversary Watch
This is what we’ll like to consider the grandpa of Rolex watches, the Rolex Day-Date 40 “President.” Today is it’s birthday and is appropriate 60 yrs old this year in 2016. This is the new commemorative timepeice to celebrate such a joyess occasion. If you wasn’t aware last year the Rolex Day-Date 40 was revised. It got a new 3255 movement and a 40mm case. Now, this years Baselworld 2016, it is getting the royal treatment. The adding of the Rolex-green dial is a stand out bonus to its anniversary year time piece.
The olive green dial has branded most iconic Rolex watches of the past. This years colors consist of a white gold or Everose gold. Each of these watches are unmistakengly timeless. The last time a timepeice was honed in this manor was back in 2013 with a 36mm version wearing a green leather band. This watch is ubiquitous thanks to the fluted bezel and day/date windows. The vintage Rolex green dial on the modern 40mm case is what some like to call a mere dream.
Thanks to the green sunray finish dial, the Rolex Day-Date 40 60th anniversary watch holds true to it’s name. This is definently one presidential looking time piece that demands respect. If such an eye catcher that everyone will recognize it soon as you walk into a room. Only option for time markers are Roman numerals, as a result most have no complants about. As a new age owner of a modern 40mm watch, I understand why most collectors gloat over wearing one of these around.
To have a Rolex Day Date 40 60th Anniversary Watch is much of nothing without the President bracelet, and in either Everose or white gold, it looks amazing as a non-anniversary watch (the two seen above). The Everose gold model has the hands and hour markers laced in 18k pink gold, while the white gold version has the matching markers to assist in it’s beauty. Which one you’ll go with is of course a matter of preference, although the Everose gold make would be considered a bit more peacockish. If the idea of standing out doesn’t bother you, then either combination of this watch is perfect together. Me personally, I impressed with them both and would wear them bout proudly.
Last years model release of the Day Date 40 was presented with a smaller case. Naturally at 41mm wide this model was cut down by an inch in diamator, as well as the new 3255 caliber movement installed. The Rolex Superlative Chronometer movement insures the wath stays accurate to within -2/+2 seconds a day, which in turn provides a healthy 70-hour power reserve.
