A unique feature of the President bracelet is the ceramic pin sleeves that help avoid bracelet stretch.

The Day-Date reference 228206 is powered by the Caliber 3255, an in-house movement developed and manufactured by Rolex. The movement is self-winding with a power reserve of up to 70 hours. The Caliber 3255 features a number of innovative technologies that make it incredibly accurate and reliable. For example, it has a Chronergy escapement designed to improve the movement’s energy efficiency and increase its reliability. The movement also features a Parachrom hairspring, which is made of a special alloy that is highly resistant to magnetic fields and temperature changes. This ensures that the movement remains accurate even in challenging conditions.
