Rolex Day-Dates in platinum go head-to-head in the series premiere of Watchbox Reviews’ new “VERSUS” luxury watch showdowns. Tim Mosso guides watch collectors through a comprehensive overview of two luxury watches for the sake of comparing and contrasting. Features, stats, value, ergonomics, and collector’s notes for all luxury watches showcased in “VERSUS” will be discussed in-depth while offering insights into the relative strengths of each piece. Watch buyers seeking to understand how Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, Audemars Piguet, and other premier luxury watches compare will find regular shootouts as we roll out this new series. While Tim’s production of roughly 30 luxury watch videos per week will continue unabated, the arrival of “VERSUS” heralds Watchbox Reviews’ evolution to offer higher quality insights and entertainment value to watch collectors, watch buyers, and watch enthusiasts.
Episode One of “VERSUS” features the 2008-2014 Rolex Day-Date II 218206 and its successor, the 2015-present Rolex Day-Date 40 228206. Both platinum Rolex Day-Dates sport the king of metals, ceramic-pin Rolex President bracelets, and Rolex’s signature ice blue dial. While only one millimeter of diameter distinguishes the raw specs for these flagship Rolex watches, bracelet construction, wrist fit, and movement features lead the line of factors that might cause a Rolex buyer to choose one or the other. Lug profiles differ even as dial diameter and crystal size hold steady; the Day-Date II 218206 is the clear choice for those seeking wrist presence and rarity above all; the Day-Date 40 228206 offers a more compact fit, laser-cut dials, and a more sophisticated Rolex caliber 3255 for the movement snobs. Neither Rolex Day-Date will disappoint; discover your next apex Rolex in “VERSUS,” episode one!
