Whether you are a history buff, love art, or just simply like the finer things in life, we encourage you to take a look at Rolex watches. These timepieces are considered artworks of the watchmaking world and will serve you faithfully for many years. Rolex watches graced the wrists of many United States presidents, activists, and influential figures. There is a reason why those who were instrumental to shaping this country’s history chose the one brand that was instrumental at redefining the standards of the watchmaking industry.

Rolex Datejust was the first watch in the world to introduce a date complication. Released in the mid 1940’s, the 100th anniversary edition of this watch was given to President Eisenhower by Rolex to celebrate his achievements in World War II. Although Rolex Datejust has changed quite a bit since the days of Eisenhower, one thing remains true: the watch retained its undeniable air of charm. Modern day Rolex Datejust is a bit larger than its predecessor with a wider case and a number of metal alloy options. Today you can purchase a stainless steel, two-tone, or gold Rolex Datejust with a dial color and markers of your choice.

Another watch that is worthy of a President is a Rolex Day-Date. This watch is often referred to as “The President” due to its bracelet. The presidential bracelet of Rolex Day-Date received its name after President Eisenhower upgraded a bracelet on his watch from the jubilee bracelet that it came with to a new Day-Date bracelet. With the creation of Rolex Day-Date, Rolex continued to be the leading watchmaker in the world. A Day-Date watch was the first watch in the world to feature a complication of the day of the week in addition to the date window. This stunning and classic watch looks similar to a Rolex Datejust but is only available in gold.
