|Name:||Day-Date 40 White Gold / Paved|
Introduced at BaselWorld 2015, the Day-Date 40 leads in a new era in the history of this Rolex icon. Its case is bigger than the classic DD yet not as large as the Day-Date II. It is powered by the highly innovative caliber 3255. Reference 228239-0049 was added to the collection in 2018. It features a diamond-paved dial with baguette-set hour markers.
Calibre 3255’s criteria for precision in everyday wear are twice as exacting as those for an officially certified chronometer. It incorporates the new Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel‑phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. The oscillator, the true heart of the watch, has an optimized blue Parachrom hairspring, which is also up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. Thanks to a new barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3255 extends to three days. This means the watch will easily continue to run from Friday evening into Monday afternoon even if not worn or wound.
