All New 40MM
The "Rolex President" Grows UP
Rolex just introduced an all new 40MM Rolex Day-Date model, which is remarkably similar to their iconic 36MM model. This is NOT a Day-Date II, but a 40mm Day-Date. Rolex also chose this model to debut their all-new super-precise new movement named the Calibre 3255, which we will be examining later this week on Jake's Rolex World.
This new model is only available with a significantly updated, yet iconic Rolex President bracelet. In other words, there is no option for a Rolex Oyster bracelet. The model below is Platinum with an Ice-Blue dial.
If you look closely, this new model has a lot of modern updated Rolex design language touches. Notice it has a Supercase body, with longer lugs, and a very flat-back, which will make it very comfortable. Rolex gave this model a really interesting name by calling it the Day-Date 40. "40" obviously refers to the diameter of the case which is 40mm.
The Rolex Day-Date, also known as "The Rolex President" is considered to be one of the most iconic and innovative smart tool watches in history.
