Rolex Day-Date 36 128238GDStyle #: 128238gd
First launched in 1956, the Rolex Day-Date has symbolized elegance, style, and fine craftsmanship for nearly 70 years. The Day-Date 36 128238GD is one of the line’s most exquisite models and a coveted Rolex watch. One of the first things you notice about the Day-Date 36 128238GD is the distinctive fluted bezel. Originally designed to improve water resistance in Rolex watches, the iconic bezel has become a signature aesthetic feature.
The 18K yellow gold seen on the Rolex Day-Date 36 128238GD’s fluted bezel, president bracelet, and case contrasts beautifully with the striking deep green ombre dial, giving this model a unique flair. The green dial also acts as a bold backdrop for one of the other stand-out features found on the Rolex Day-Date 36 128238GD: the diamond hour markers, which are delicately set in 18K gold.
The Day-Date gets its name from the window at the twelve o’clock position that spells out the day in full. This changes automatically at midnight and is available in a wide range of languages, making it popular around the globe. In addition to the day window, the date is displayed at the three o’clock position. The date is magnified two and half times by the famous Rolex Cyclops lens, named after the mythological one-eyed giant, dramatically improving legibility. This stunning Rolex watch sports the impressive caliber 3255 and boasts a precision of -2/+2 seconds per day after casing. Despite not being a sports watch, it is water-resistant up to 330 ft. and has high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers.
