One Minute Watch with John Carter

Pre-Owned Rolex Day-Date 40 Ref. 228235

A Rolex Day-Date is truly a sight to behold. Often referred to as the “President”, the Day-Date is one of the most recognizable watches ever created. You’ll feel the exceptional quality of the Rolex Day-Date 40 from the moment it touches your wrist.

This version of the legendary President’s watch is crafted entirely out of Rolex’s proprietary Everose pink gold. Dating to 2016, this pre-owned Rolex Day-Date 40 in Everose gold has an entirely different look and feel over its more commonly-seen versions in yellow gold. The case and bracelet have a different tone and brighter luster versus other precious metals, and the beauty of the Everose gold paired with a chocolate dial creates an unmatched presence on the wrist. The chocolate colored dial blends brilliantly with Everose gold case and the characteristic rolled-link “President” bracelet.



Wearing a Rolex Day-Date is symbol of power and success. These elegant timepieces have graced the wrists of influential figures and dignitaries since 1956, including President Johnson and President Kennedy — which is how it got its nickname, the “President.”

Dating to 2016, this modern interpretation of the Day-Date features a 40mm case crafted in Everose gold, with a chocolate dial and the characteristic rolled-link “President” bracelet. The combination of the rich chocolate-colored dial against warm pink gold presents an entirely different look over the more commonly-seen yellow gold models.

The dial is adorned with deconstructed Roman numerals that are minutely faceted and applied to the dial by hand. A perfect accent to the fluted bezel, these deconstructed Roman numerals come to life as light reflects off the faceted indicies. Characterized by its day display at 12 o’clock and date aperture at 3 o’clock, the Rolex Day-Date showcases a luxurious yet approachable style.
