Review Summary:

Even though everyone in the world knows how well-built a Rolex watch is, very few people know what it feels like to own and wear one. That is because a Rolex watch costs a lot of money. That said, even fewer have actually seen and worn a watch from the Rolex Day-Date line. Again, that's because Day-Date watches are the most expensive watches in the Rolex line.

The Day-Date Masterpiece Meteorite

Day-Date watches, also called the Presidential, aren’t made of stainless steel. They are only made out of solid gold or platinum. That’s why even the cheapest Day-Date watches cost around $25,000. There are several models crafted for both men and women. And one of the most popular Day-Date watches for women is the Masterpiece Meteorite Platinum Pearlmaster.

The Day-Date Masterpiece Meteorite sounds rough and rugged but it is anything but. A woman who owns this beautifully crafted watch will be the envy of everyone in the neighborhood (or maybe even the world). That’s because it has the following features:

  • Platinum Case and Pearlmaster Bracelet
  • Minute Markers on outer rim
  • 40 Diamonds on Fixed Bezel Set
  • Meteorite Dial with Silver Hands and Hour Markers
  • Analog Display with Day and Date feature

The Pros

It’s easy to imagine the different benefits to wearing the Presidential. For those who can’t, here are a few of them:

  • Truly Luxurious

Nothing says luxury like Platinum and Diamonds. That said, simply placing precious materials in a watch won’t make the watch worth buying. Rolex watchmakers use their master skills and years of experience to mold these precious materials into something that’s worth wearing. In fact, Rolex is the only watch company left that cuts the diamonds on their watches themselves. Only that level of dedication and craftsmanship can bring about such elegant time pieces.

  • Unique Watch

Although a number of Day-Date Masterpiece Meteorite watches have been made, each of those watches are unique. That’s because the dial of the watch is made from actual meteorite. These meteorite dials have streaks that are different from each other. Hence despite having the same name, no two Meteorite Presidential watches are exactly the same.

  • Good Quality

Set aside the platinum, the diamonds and the meteorite and what’s left will be a classic Rolex watch. This means that all Day-Date watches are though. That’s because they have the same dust and water resistant properties that are standards for Rolex models.

The Cons

When a watchmaker decides to use the most expensive materials on the planet to make a watch, it will surely affect the cost. It’s no surprise then that cost is the biggest disadvantage of the Day-Date watch.

  • Extremely Expensive

The Day-Date Masterpiece Meteorite is a $75,000 watch; and that’s after getting a 22% discount. With that kind of money, a person can buy 10 Datejust watches with change to spare.

  • Hard To Repair

A single link on a Day-Date bracelet costs thousands of dollars. So if the owner breaks it, or needs additional links for the watch to fit, it’ll set them back a hefty sum. Perhaps that’s why they only wear them occasionally

The Verdict

Overall, the Day-Date Masterpiece Meteorite is just like any old Rolex; it’s beautifully crafted and built to last. But the materials that went into it and the name it holds make it unaffordable for most people. That said, those who have money to spare shouldn’t pass up on such an incredible watch.
