Rolex released the Day-Date ref. 18239 in the late 1980s. Also known as the “President’s Watch,” the Rolex Day-Date is closely associated with some of the world’s most influential leaders and public figures, including (you guessed it) many former American Presidents. It’s always presented in precious metal, further cementing its status as a symbol of power, success, and prestige. If you want to make a bold statement on the wrist that says, “I’ve made it,” the Rolex Day-Date is the watch to wear.
Rolex has released countless editions of their legendary double calendar watch since the collection hit the market in 1956, including the topic of this review, the unique Tridor Replica Rolex Day-Date ref. 18239. But what is the Rolex Tridor? Join us as we take a closer look at this exceptional watch.
What is a Rolex Tridor?
The Rolex term “Tridor” refers to the combination of three different precious metals, specifically 18k rose gold, yellow gold and white gold. Each metal is fused together to create perfect, contrasting stripes of different colors of gold that run throughout the bracelet, which many Rolex replica watches also have.
The outer links are crafted from 18K white gold and match the case, which is typically surrounded by a gold fluted bezel. Striped center links create a sense of mystery and dimension, reflecting 1980s jewelry fashion. Today, the Rolex Tridor is a highly regarded collectible among watch enthusiasts for its unique vintage design.
The replica Rolex President was known for its chronometer-certified precision and, with a waterproof case resistant to a depth of 100 meters, was also known for its durability. The timepiece is topped with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with a Cyclops lens that magnifies the date for easier at-a-glance reading.
