Rolex reveals new “Day-Date 40” model.
Guam – It’s referred to as a symbol of excellence and prestige since the 1950’s, and now, in commemoration of their 60th Anniversary, Rolex is opening their doors to the general public for a special exhibition featuring a new addition to their most prestigious line of quality crafted watches.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is the latest model to grace the shelves of the Rolex display case.

To celebrate the launch of the luxury timepieces, a panel of experts and executives shared why they believe Rolex wristwatches are in fact, pieces of art. Angel Mendoza, the DKSH General Manager poised with excitement, spoke of Day-Date’s newest features.
“(Guests) will have the look at the Exhibition of the first 60 years of the most prestigious, and I would repeat that, prestigious and exclusive Rolex watch. You will learn its history, evolution, and its reputation for precision, technical excellence, and superlative performance,” he said.
According to Rolex, the new line is currently the only wristwatch in the world to feature the self-winding mechanism and the calendar day window.
