  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2008, the Day-Date II ref. 218206 cased in a noble 41mm diameter platinum case, is bigger and bolder than ever and expanded its offerings to the taste of modern standards. Housed inside a beautiful and weighted platinum case is the reliable and robust cal. 3156 under a delicious rich chocolate dial. Further embellished with Roman numerals and the simplicity of a smooth bezel, the ref 218206 is certainly a statement piece amongst the Rolex President collection.

    The reference was discontinued in 2015 with the release of the Day-Date 40. Presented in excellent overall condition and further accompanied by the original guarantee and presentation box, the present example is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an attractive and luxurious wristwatch manufactured by none other than Rolex.

  • Artist Biography

    Rolex

    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
