Rolex's ultimate status watch, Day-Date.

Introduced in 1956, the Day-Date was the world's first waterproof self-winding chronometer wristwatch with a dial that displays the date and full-spelled day of the week.


case is made in 18K gold or platinum only. With the only day of the week display and limited materials, it has established itself as the finest watch in Rolex.

Day-Date is sometimes called "President Watch".

Its origin began with being presented to the 34th President of the United States, Dwight Eisenhower, and its name was established by the patronage of successive presidents.

The bracelet, which is made of gold like the

case, is known as the "President Breath" and has a strong image of "a first-class watch worn by successful leaders."

This Ref.118239 is a 6th generation day-date model that has been produced since around 2001. The case material is 18K white gold.

Compared to the previous generation Ref.18239, the design has changed to a more rounded shape.

Also, the finish of the rug part has been changed from hairline finish to polish finish (mirror finish).

Preference is divided, but I feel that the feeling of luxury has increased because the surface is all polished.

The dial is a brown-colored dial called Havana. It has a unique color like cognac brown, and the color changes depending on the viewing angle.

Day-Date has various dials, but this Havana is a rare color. The Applied Roman Index is even cooler.

The bracelet is currently about 17 cm around the arm, but it can handle up to 18.5 cm because it comes with 3 extra pieces. The movement equipped with
is a self-winding Cal.3155. By adopting the twin bridge method, stability and maintainability have been further improved.

Also, until the previous model, it was a specification that only the date was quick changed, but from this model both the date and the day of the week can be changed quickly, which is also very excellent in terms of practicality.

You can change the date by turning clockwise (clockwise) and the day of the week by turning counterclockwise (counterclockwise) with the crown pulled one step.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.

About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
