The Rolex Day-Date was first launched in 1956. However, its history dates back to 1950, when a patent was filed in Switzerland for a watch that displayed both the day and the month on the dial.

The first Rolex Day-Date watches were produced in white, yellow, or rose gold with a domed bezel (ref.6510 version) or with a slotted bezel (ref.6511).  These watch models were only produced for a year before being replaced by ref. 6611.

Entering the 1960s, Rolex Day-Date watch became famous and loved by world leaders. 

The brand now offers the Rolex Day-Date in both 36 mm and 40 mm dial sizes, in platinum, rose gold, yellow gold and white gold. Additionally, the brand continues to produce a number of exclusive versions with diamond dials and bezels, bracelets and gem-set dials.  These models typically have six-digit prices.

The Rolex Day-Date has a dial size of 36 mm which means that it is suitable for all genders. 

Watches, especially ones with a long, sustainable production life don't usually double in price overnight.  They tend to increase in price for many years.  However, Rolex Day-Date is making a difference.

The Rolex Day-Date "Rainbow Khanjar" has a strong attraction.  It is estimated that only 5 models will be released to the market.  So it's extremely rare.

Besides, the watch model is exquisitely decorated by the brand.  18K white gold case, diamond dial and sapphire bezel.  The bracelet part is set with diamonds.

In the near future, experts predict that Rolex Day-Date will get more attention.  The auction price will be the most specific evidence.  The Rolex Day-Date is the most recent Rolex watch to break the million dollar mark in the auction.

Until now, the Rolex Day-Date is still loved by many presidents, artists and NBA superstars.  For many people, this watch model is a symbol of success.

After being auctioned for $1,330,000, the Rolex Day-Date deserves to be on Watch Collector's wish list.


More than just a watch, Rolex have become a symbol of quality and luxury. Let’s find out more about some
Hot Rolex Watches these days: Rolex Submariner, Rolex Daytona and Rolex Oyster Perpetual.

It is not exaggerated at all to say that Rolex is currently the King of luxury watches. It is the most recognizable luxury watch brand in the world and has many loyal customers who are willing to pay a big amount to own a Rolex watch. Built on different purposes, Rolex is not just simply used as jewelry or decoration like some of their peers. Rather, you will find many classic models of Rolex created for specific, functional purposes, such as the Rolex Submariner for diving or the Rolex Daytona for racing. Add to that, as time goes by, the Rolex watches will increase in value and for that reason, Rolex watches are considered a good investment. Today, we are going to know more about Rolex Submariner and Rolex Daytona and Rolex Oyster Perpetual.  

1- Hot Rolex Watches: Rolex Submariner

The Rolex Submariner in stainless steel is among the most recognizable watches in the world. Making its debut in 1953, the stainless version still receives much love and support from the real Rolex fans, despite different options being added to the Rolex Submariner collection. The Rolex Submariner, together with the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, presents the advanced technology of waterproofness applying on luxury watches.

The designs of Rolex watches have always been sophisticated and the Rolex Submariner is not out of this trend. Its real attraction comes from traditional design and modern technology. The Rolex Submariner has a robust 804L Oyster steel, enhancing the timepiece’s resistance to corrosion. You definitely can expect an outstanding shiny appearance after polishing. There are also a set of four click-springs, allowing it easier to adjust the bezel. The feature making the luxury watch more supporting for deep drivers is the rotatable bezel because it can maintain an excellent grip even underwater.  

2- Hot Rolex WatchesRolex Daytona

Do you know what is the price of the Rolex Daytona watch price when it was introduced in the market? $12,400. This time the company was bombarded with orders despite that sky-rocketing price of the Rolex Daytona watch. The bezel actually is the biggest update on the new Rolex Daytona which makes watch lovers excited. It not only refreshes the watch but also gives it a completely retro look. Rolex made its proprietary ceramic material, Cerachrom, into its product in 2005.

The combination of diamond polish finish, together with the properties of ceramic, makes it virtually scratchproof and impervious to color degradation. Thanks to this, you can expect your beloved Rolex Daytona watch to look new and super shiny. The Rolex Daytona watch’s tachymeter numbers do not have all the text on the same axis. Instead, it follows the curve of the bezel. With 72 hours of power reserve, the excellent caliber 4130 really beats away behind the dial (in which there is a black ring around the chronograph totalizers). A new chronograph movement definitely is not simple and the Rolex Daytona is no doubt the best in its class for the plenty of life left in it.  

3- Hot Rolex WatchesRolex Oyster Perpetual

Whenever it comes to the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, the first thing we must talk about is that everything belonging to it is kept simple: the smooth, polished bezel, the dateless dial, brushed case, or snap-fit clasp. There is no big resistance, glossy ceramic, or reams of dial text here. The movement, of course, is not out of this trend. It is made in an old school way with a forty-eight-hour and chronometer-certified powertrain. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch price is much cheaper considering its peers like the Rolex Submariner. However, it still can live up to the dream because it is so plain, simple, frill-free, and basic. Thus, it is perfectly suited to the main concept of any Rolex watch: simple, rugged, and well-built watch.

The Single Porsche looks the part, sounds the part, and drives every bit as it is supposed to be. It gets new brakes, new suspension, new electrics, and a rebuilt engine. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is nothing but a balance – the best of both worlds. Despite Rolex watch price, these timepieces are really appreciated by the world of professionals. This is because what they deliver, whether the Rolex Submariner, the Rolex Daytona, or the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, is much more than what a normal watch can. It is a massage of lifestyle.

 It is not uncommon for celebrities or top sports stars in the world to own luxury items.  However the coincidence of the world\'s most expensive Rolex watch is owned by Ronaldo - the first football player to become a billionaire, brings excitement and awe to fans.

 According to a Forbes report, this 35-year-old soccer superstar is the highest-earning footballer in a year.  In addition to the annual salary and bonus of 65 million USD at the Juventus club, Ronaldo also increased his bank account with generous advertising contracts.  In 2020, Ronaldo made $105 million from advertising contracts, including $45 million from Nike, Altice, Herbalife and his own brand CR7.

 Rolex, as well as the Swiss watch industry, are facing a challenging business year due to the Covid-19 epidemic.  Reputable and sought-after watch brand name on the market- Rolex continues to retain its charisma by winning the world\'s top stars\' hearts with a large following on social media.


Rolex watch brand has been favored by watch fans for a long time because of the perfect and unique design. Due to this watch brand’s high price and popularity, a lot of fake Rolex watches have appeared on the market. So, how to spot a counterfeit Rolex watch to choose yourself an authentic one?

 How to spot a counterfeit Rolex watch? Rolex is a luxury watch brand which is favored by a lot of watch fans / Ph: pinterest

#1: Prices

Remember that a genuine Rolex watch will not cost just some millions or under $5,000. So, regardless of any reasons from buyers for those cheap prices, do not believe and choose other watch stores

#2: Water-proof

All genuine Rolex watches are manufactured with extremely good waterproof feature. All Rolex watches have this special feature while many fake watches do not have: “Rolex Submariner watch is the only product designed for deep sea diving, but all Rolex watches are waterproof and totally protected”.

#3: Weight of the watch

Actually, real Rolex watch is heavier than the counterfeit goods because it is made from the best materials. In contrast, fake products are manufactured in cheap materials; therefore, they are lighter and not tight.   

#4: Small symbol

Since 2002, Rolex began to apply the tiny crown symbol on the Sapphire crystal to protect the dial. This micro-brand logo is engraved at 6 o’clock. If you purchase a Rolex watch from 2002 onwards, look for this sign to authenticate the product.

#5: Magnification

According to William May Jewelry Association, a perfect Rolex watch usually has a small date sign. So, lens or magnifying glass is added to help people easily see that sign. The simplest way to distinguish is that the large lens on watch’s face of a real Rolex will zoom in right on the date point. Remember the 5 over recognitions for how to spot a counterfeit Rolex watch.

V- The rare Rolex Daytona model sells for $3.1 million

Surpassing all expectations, the Rolex Daytona with a turquoise dial just sold for $3.1 million.

The auction house Sotheby\'s has once again demonstrated how well-sought-after Rolex Daytona watches are.  If last year, a platinum Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch with a splendid lapis lazuli dial set a record with a price of 3.27 million USD, at a recent auction, Rolex Daytona watch code 16516  with a turquoise dial - a material never used in the Daytona range - continues to impress at a price tag of $3.1 million.

 The Rolex Platinum Daytona Turquoise Dial code 16516 uses the Zenith 4030 movement, made in 1998 - at the end of the period when Rolex also used the automatic Zenith El Primero movement for the Daytona.  As a reminder, Rolex started using the Zenith brand movement in 1988 and replaced it with its own in-house automatic chronograph movement from 2000 onwards.

The Rolex Platinum Daytona Turquoise Dial is said to be one of the only five Daytona that uses a platinum case and is equipped with a Zenith movement.  Auction house Sotheby\'s once said that Rolex had produced many automatic Rolex Daytona watches, but the materials used mostly were stainless steel, white gold, gold gold or a blend of steel and gold over the years.  The platinum Daytona version is extremely rare.

 This watch is estimated to sell for $512,000 to $1,025 million.  However, above all expectations, it was sold for 6 times the lowest estimated price.

 The fact that Rolex watches are constantly being sold at high prices is proof that Rolex watches are a profitable investment, at least for the time being.  Especially sports watch models like the Daytona, that is even more confirmed.
