The Rolex Day-Date II is a modern and technologically advanced update of the legendary Rolex Day-Date. The most noticeable difference between the original Day-Date and the updated Day-Date II is the Day-Date II’s significantly larger case. Its updated 41 mmm case has a bold and powerful appearance, and its larger size is in keeping with the modern trend of larger watches.
Though the new case size was the most easily seen change in the new 2008 model’s design, many other changes were made. Internally, the Day-Date II features a new 3156 calibre movement. It also features Paraflex shock absorbers and the Rolex Parachrom Hairspring, making the Day-Date II ultra-resistant to shocks and magnetic interference. Additionally, all of the Day-Date II models feature the signature Rolex magnified date window, something that was absent in early models of the Day-Date. All of the Day-Date II models are also waterproof up to 100 meters.
The Day-Date II is available in only platinum and gold (with 18k white gold, 18k yellow gold, and 18k Everose gold options). The wristwatch comes equipped with the famous Rolex President bracelet, which has a signature crownclasp with folding blades. The bezel of the Day-Date II is available in three options: fluted, smooth, and gem-set. The crystal of the watch is sapphire and the day reader is available in 26 different languages.
The Day-Date II has been released with many different dial choices in unique colors and textures, and with unique number readings. Some notable models include the Rolex Day-Date II 218238 (with a white roman numeral dial and an 18k yellow gold case), the Rolex Day-Date II 218235 (with an ivory dial and an 18k Everose gold case), and the Rolex Day-Date 218206 (with an ice blue roman numeral dial in a platinum case). Extra luxurious models of the wristwatch, featuring diamond-set indices, have also been released.
The Rolex Day-Date II continues the legacy of the Day-Date as a watch for leaders. The original Day-Date, also referred to as the Rolex President, began a legacy of innovation, quality, and superior design. The updates made for the Day-Date II have ensured that this powerful legacy will continue into the modern era.
