Today, we'll be reviewing the Rolex Day-Date 40. This is the model number 228345RBR. We'll be going over the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp, and we'll talk about the movement towards the end of the video. So jumping right into the dial here, we have one of the most luxurious dials. We have a chocolate dial in this number sort of featuring as you can see, as I tilted it around into my light box, it captures lighting very nicely with tinges of highlighted, highlighted browns, and you know darker variations of browns as well. Sort of radiating around the dial. But that's not the only thing that makes it a luxurious. That beautiful baguette diamond hour markers. Of course, it's going to be ten of them as we're going to be missing one at the 12 o'clock position which has the day and the three o'clock position, which has the date. Cyclops lens on top of that Sapphire crystal for magnification and easier viewing of that date, of course. Not only that but a beautiful diamond, a beautiful diamond bezel as well making this an incredibly luxurious watch. The hour markers, the hour markers, the case, the hour markers, case, crown, bracelet, is also all encompassed or rather made out of of a 18 carat Everose gold, which is Rolex's way of making a rose gold that lasts throughout its lifetime. And what do I mean by last throughout its lifetime? As they call it, the Everose, typically other brands when they do their rose gold, red gold, or whatever gold they want to call it, it tends to fade over time. You might have this beautiful reddish hue that, you know they've have maybe added a little more copper and it gets this very beautiful red hue but it does fade over time, where compared to Rolex, they add a little platinum mixture into their into their rose gold, of course, I'm pretty sure they probably add a lot more things, but platinum was one of those things and it keeps this beautiful Everose gold color, coloration throughout its lifetime from the settings, from the setting on the bezel, to the case, to the bracelet, crown, and on the settings of the baguette diamonds on the dial itself. That will keep its beautiful, beautiful pinkish gold color throughout its lifetime. Another thing I want to mention is that the text is beautifully gilded as well, to add a nice contrast from that brown but still complimenting it very nicely. So we have the Rolex Oyster Perpetual dating name there at the 12 o'clock position, with the crown logo above it and the Everose gold. The hands themselves are full Everose gold as well. So hour, minute, and seconds hand, and at the six o'clock position, we have that gilded text of Superlative Chronometer basically certified as well. Okay, but if this is maybe, it's may be too many diamonds for you, maybe you don't like all diamonds. Well, you have various options as well, not too many options but you do have options. So if you're still looking for a baguette diamonds, but not in love with the chocolate, then you can also get it in a sundust dial. You don't like the chocolate, or you don't like the chocolate, or the baguette diamonds, you can also get it in a Roman numeral, or index hour markers as well. Roman numerals available in sundust and chocolate. With the index hour markers, which are the luminous, luminous stick markers, available with a matte white, sundust and chocolate as well. And of course, if you just have way too much money and you don't know what to do with it, you can also opt for the Paved version as well where the whole dial is covered in diamonds. All right. So moving on to the bezel now, so I'm going to get a little bit, get a little bit closer to here. So you can take a look at that bezel once more. Beautifully set, beautifully set diamonds all around. Fortunately, Rolex doesn't publish carat weights on their, on their diamonds. So I can not tell you that, but I can tell you it's around 46 to 48 beautiful set diamonds. All right. Moving on to the case. Now the case size is a 40 Day-Date 40, so it's a 40 millimeter size. The, from index finger to my thumb here that's 40 millimeters in diameter. I know that the previous models of Day-Dates, specifically for the yellow golds, the Day-Date twos were in a 41. So they actually downsized the swatch and by a millimeter but it still looks fantastic overall. As we move on to the side of the case, you can see very beautiful high polish on the sides of the case matching with the sides of the bracelet. Lugs as well, nice, nice and crisp. And on the other side as well, you can see this is the crown side with the Rolex, Rolex crown logo on the crown itself there with two dot and and c's indicating that this is a Twinlock in double waterproofness system. All right, now that I mentioned that, we're going to go ahead and move on to the crown functions. So you're going to simply unwind the crown counterclockwise as shown and in the center position is where you can wind the watch about 15 to 20 winds, is all you need. to get started from a dead stop. Pulling the crown out to backs position will allow you to adjust both the day and the date. So going counterclockwise, will let you adjust the day. So I'm going to go ahead and set it to maybe, I don't know, Thursday. And you'll be able to adjust the date by going clockwise So I can set it to 25th and then pulling in the crown out to the final position allow you to stop the seconds hand or the hacking movement, as you see I've stopped it right after the six o'clock position. And that allows you to set the time to the exact second such as on line for precise time setting and then you'll be able to move the hands by directionally, however you like, to adjust the time. Pressing, pressing the crown back in, will start a second time once more, and always, always, always make sure to screw the crown nice and tight in against the case as you want to keep your watch water resistant, specifically for this Day-Date watch, you're looking at a water resistance of 100 meters or 330 feet. Moving on to the bracelet now, as you would expect from any Day-Date watch, it comes on a president style bracelet. The bracelet that was made for Day Dates. You can see that there's, it's sort of a mix between the Oyster style and Jubilee style in the sense that it's a three-piece link like an Oyster style bracelet but has the sort of similar half-semicircular links like a Jubilee style bracelet. Best of both worlds, as you can see, very beautiful brush finishing on the outer of the three-piece links and center links are nicely high-polished down the center all the way throughout. Have this concealed folding crown clasp that you won't see in most other Day-Date watches anymore, as they've sort of moved on to a Oyster, folding Oyster clasp instead and the concealed folding crown clasp is honestly one of the best things about the Jubilee, Jubilee bracelets and the Oyster, the president's style bracelets. It keeps a nice, consistent pattern throughout only broken up by the crown itself. As we move through the whole bracelet, can see very beautiful patterning throughout. Also a beautiful tapering to keep everything in proportion from the first leg down to, down to the back before it plateaus to the same, same sizing links. And then we're going to go ahead and open up that concealed folding crown clasp by simply tugging that crown open. And there we are. Beautiful 18 carat Everose, Everose gold and as I said, high polish with the Rolex name embossed on there. All right. So once again, that's how it looks, completely concealed and closed. Once again, open that up as so. All right, and there we are. The movement is housed in this case back. The source of back in here, nice and finished in the parts that sits on your wrist, a nice bordering high polish around the very back edge of it. The movement itself has been updated from the previous model. The previous model used to use a 3155 movement but now Rolex is, Rolex is trying to use in-house made parts so now we have a 3255 movement. Specifically it's still a Perpetual, mechanical, self-learning movement that's within specifically as a minus four plus six seconds a day but Rolex has double tests their movements to make sure they're, you know, reliable. So it is below even that four minus two plus two sec plus two seconds a day. Also the functions of the movement of course is for the hour, minute, and seconds hand. Stopping the seconds hand change, being able to change both the day and the date on a singer, on the single crown function, it is unique to obviously the Day-Date, the Day-Date watch. The, also there is still a Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring which aids in resistance against magnetism while also the shock absorbers, which used to be the KIF shock absorbers have been changed to the Rolex's in-house made shock absorbers called the Paraflex shock absorbers, which they claim absorbs 50% more shocks than that initially set KIF. Not only that, they've also changed the escapement. It's now a chronergy escapement, which is a skeletonized escapement wheel made out of nickel phosphorous. Nickel phosphorous helping with it, aiding with a resistance against magnetism with that Parachrom hairspring. And obviously you don't want your watch to get magnetized. It can cause it to run erratically. Usually the cases are running much faster and you'll have a take it somewhere to get it demagnetized. The skeletonization of the escapement also helps with energy efficiency, also and also precise timekeeping. Energy efficiency, meaning that previously, I believe the previous 3155 was a 50 hour, 50 to 55 hour power reserve, but now we have a 70 hour power reserve meaning you could put this watch down on a Friday evening, pick it back up on a Monday morning when you go back to work and you'll be keeping time just fine. Now let me actually go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist. So give me one second to get this watch on my wrist now. So we're going to open up the concealed folding crown, snap that on and there we are. Beautiful, beautiful luxurious Day-Date 40 watch and baguette diamonds, diamonds on the bezel, all around that chocolate, that chocolate dial looking absolutely gorgeous with the sort of variation and the sunburst and just absolutely so much shine in the face of the watch. Definitely will be an eye-catcher when you're walking around with this watch. The 18 carat Everose gold, this is a color you see, and this is a color it will be forever and beautiful variation of polishing on the bracelet itself. President style bracelet always looks fantastic with that semicircular links and being nice, thick links. And the concealed folding crown clasp to make, keep that continuous pattern throughout.
