Rolex Day-Date ‘President’ Ref. 228238


Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm Day-Date ‘President’ White Dial, President Bracelet, Ref. 228238

The Rolex Day-Date ‘President’ watch holds a prominent place in the brand’s history and is renowned for its iconic design and luxurious appeal. Introduced in 1956, the Day-Date quickly gained recognition as the first wristwatch to display both the date and the day of the week spelled out in full. Its nickname “President” stemmed from its association with influential world leaders and notable figures who were often seen wearing the watch. Over the years, the Day-Date ‘President’ has become a symbol of prestige, craftsmanship, and timeless elegance, solidifying its position as one of Rolex’s most celebrated and sought-after timepieces.

This exceptional Rolex Day-Date ‘President’ 228238 features a 40mm 18k yellow gold case with a matching gold fluted bezel and comes complete with box and papers. Its white dial is adorned with gold Roman numeral hour markers, alongside a date and day of the week reference for practicality. Beneath its iconic exterior, the self-winding 3255 caliber movement has precision criteria that is twice as exacting as those for an officially certified chronometer, along with a power reserve up to three days. It incorporates the new Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel‑phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. The blue Parachrom hairspring is also up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. Complementing the watch is an 18k yellow gold President bracelet, meticulously crafted. The Rolex Day-Date ‘President’ 228238 embodies success and unwavering quality, making a statement of elegance that transcends time.

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
